Ride with GPS Map:
A gentle 300k route that takes in the 2 main lakes on the River Shannon, Lough Ree and Lough Derg, in the midlands. This route travels through 7 counties over its distance.
Stunning views are on hand over both lakes and the surrounding countryside as this route takes an anticlockwise route around both lakes through gentle country roads that are among the best in Ireland.
Starting off in the Co. Offaly town of Cloughan, the route heads north eventually arriving at the most northerly point of Lough Ree on the Roscommon/Longford border town of Lanesborough.
From here it takes a southerly direction, through Roscommon, all the way down to the southerly most point of Lough Derg in the small town of Killaloe Co. Clare, taking in such towns as Ballinasloe and Portumna, both in Co. Galway, along the way.
From here the route takes a northerly turn heading back up to Cloughan, passing through the like of Terryglass and Lorrha in Co. Tipperary.
Plenty of opportunities for stunning photos await all participants and ample food and coffee stops along the way ensure this is one Audax not to be missed.
