Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in Wales on Sunday, 28th-July-2019. Rush to Holyhead. 44 Miles. Well at least I managed to get my fat arse moving today!
A nice early start and I was in Dublin at just after 9 o’clock. An easy ride in mainly on cycle/bus lanes, which being a Sunday were fairly quiet.
Once in Dublin I went straight to the port to book my ticket, then it was off into Dublin city, where I spent a couple of hours cycling around. I never stopped anywhere as I’m always nervous about leaving the bike!
One thing I did notice, there was a lot of glass on the roads, particularly on the side streets near the bars. Obviously it was a lively Saturday night!
Time passed very quickly and in no time at all it was time to go back to the ferry.
The ferry crossing was very enjoyable, and also passed in no time at all! A young family who had been visiting family in Ireland came and sat next to me. We spent the entire journey talking and playing cards!
I arrived in Holyhead and went to find a hotel, but they were full! I even tried a couple of B&B’s, one turned the no vacancy light on just as I turned up! And the next one said that they were full, despite, the sign saying to the contrary and their carpark being empty!
But it all turned out for the best, I managed to find a lovely little campsite with a pub attached!
Don’t know how I didn’t spot it in the first place!
