Two wheels outing

Thursday 4 May

It seemed like a good idea to take the bikes out for some exercise, and ride a 12-mile round trip into Newry, at the top of Carlingford Lough. Unfortunately, in spite of mostly picturesque scenery, this turned out to be a bike lane on a busy main road, and mainly into a headwind. The dubious highlights of this visit were a good lunch in a local café, and an unexpected discovery of Sainsbury’s, allowing a grateful Mate to indulge in some much-needed provisioning.
