En-route to the Cliffs of Moher: a memorial to the men who have died attempting to tranverse the Atlantic by rowboat

County Clare, en-route to Galway. Surfing is very popular throughout the British Isles.


Castles crop up now and then…


Typical scenery in lovely Ireland.


On the walking route to Ballyvaughn, County Clare


Wildflowers are abundant


Church ruins are also abundant


Walking route to Ballyvaughn


Pancakes for breakfast in Dublin after carrying a sack of flour 3000+ kilometers. 2000 kilometers later I still have some.


Coastal road just south of Galway


Mick Gormly: Irish heavyweight champion for three years mid 20th Century. He then treated us to a performance of the Irish National Anthem


Typical cycle-tourers’ fare in the British Isles


Walking route


In the castle near Skerries


Beach, Skerries


A castle just north of Skerries.


Cycle Detouring: rather than take the long way around, we schlep our gear from the castle grounds back to the road


Giants’ Causeway, Northern Ireland


Schlepping.
