SITES  Wicklow Mountains, Sally Gap, Glendalough. Fabulous ride today.  Cafe at Glencree where you can replenish water. The road is closed at the Merry Ploughboy but we ignore it and go straight through. This route has steep sections, both up and down, along with wicked curves.  Be sure you’re seen. Wicklow Mountains have dropoffs without guardrails, so don’t hug the yellow line unless we can catch it on video.
