Google+ Running in Cork, Ireland

Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle.... has nothing to do with running ;o) but I did this yesterday (Sat 7th) in aid of Kerry Mountain Rescue. I'd recommend it to anyone who has an interest in cycling or anyone who does cycling as part of their cross training program. It is very well organised and if the weather is good (like yesterday), it is a stunning cycle with incredible scenery along the way. This was it's 24th year and I guess that it is on in July every year.

The photo on the left shows the cyclists descending from the mountain pass between Waterville and Sneem with Kenmare Bay to the right.

The photo on the right shows the start in Killarney at 8am with Jackie Healy-Rae TD giving us a few words of encouragement. He advised us to get around safely, to avoid any potholes and that we should ring him if we saw any, especially around Caherciveen ;o)
