Today’s stage starts with a short spin out of the village of Tarbert to pick up the ferry across the mighty River Shannon. On arrival into Killimor we are into county Clare and heading for some of the most scenic locations on the Wild Atlantic Way.
The route takes us through the picturesque town of KIlrush as we travel towards Loop Head. This is coastal cycling at its best, with the majestic Loop Head lighthouse forming an amazing backdrop for this section of the stage.
We’ll stop for lunch in Keating’s of Kilbaha where our cyclists always get a warm welcome and enjoy a glorious bowl of seafood chowder to set them up for the rest of the day. The final stretch of this stage sees us head 30km the road to a coffee stop in Kilkee and then onwards to our overnight stop in the seaside town of Lahinch. The proximity of the beach to the centre of the town makes a swim in the Atlantic as the perfect end to a great day on the bike.
