Kanturk Three Day 2019

Kanturk Three Day 2019 was held over a glorious weekend with the May bank holiday. Four stages in three days. Starting on the Saturday and finishing on the Monday. Just posting up the films from the weekend and a few photos, as they will always be visible here on Balooz.com where as they will get lost on Social Media.

They are High Definition films so should show fine on a Smart-TV

Cycle around the Ring of Beara

Cycle around the Ring of Beara, it has to be one of the best cycling routes in the whole of Ireland. The roads are quiet and there is just spectacular scenery all the way. Many small villages with places to stop for food and drink. Too few to mention, so I won’t.

Follow the route as shown in the video, but of course start from any where that suits and feel free to stay around for a few days. You don’t need to sign up for a sportive to enjoy this route, indeed it is much more fun when you are on your own or just with a small group.

Cycle the Ring of Beara Peninsula

Cycle the Ring of Beara Peninsula, on the wildatlanticway .#beara #film It is quite possibly the nicest cycle route in Ireland… Especially when the weather is right. Any time come and do it, you don't need a sportive to sign up to. Just put 50€ in your pocket and cycle around, get lunch in any one of many bars or restaurants.
