It does not take much for me to get on my bike to explore areas like this and these are a few images on my daily travels
A sense of old Ireland
A sense of style from a Mayo lady
Westport Town Centre
A family adventure to Achill Island
The road to the Mweel Rea Mountains and Carrickwee Strand
Arrival at Carrickwee Strand and end of the road. Must cycle back now.
I found it hard to find much on websites but the local Ordnance Survey maps are excellent. This is the website for Cycling around Westport. It will also be on Eurovelo 1 if you are touring. I have come across several touring cyclists from Holland, Germany and USA. Most day cyclists seem to be Irish. I even met a guy at the start of a 2 year adventure. He comes from Denver, USA but started his bike ride in Dublin. He plans to cycle to Tokyo.
The weather while I have been here has been 20 degrees C and mostly sun. However there is often rain but you can see it coming so it is not a surprise. The wind can whip up into a frenzy, then disappear. If it is behind you, peddling is a dream. I cycled approx 200 miles locally.
