Cliffs of Moher Make Top 10 Greatest Cycle Routes in the World
Cliffs of Moher and Co. Clare make top 10 greatest Cycling Routes in the World
Thousands of cyclists climb the hills that lead Cliffs of Moher enjoying the costal views along the way. Cyclists look forward to that break and enjoy the beautiful vista at the Cliffs of Moher. It is no wonder that the Cliffs get a mention when Co. Clare is selected by Lonely Planet 10 ten places in the world to cycle.
This is an extract from Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2010:
'Beginning in fertile lowlands flanking the Shannon estuary, this route rolls past golden-sand beaches to the dramatic Cliffs of Moher facing the Atlantic. Next come the music hotbed towns of Milltown Malbay and Doolin, where you enter a pub only if you're in for the long haul – leaving before the last song is sung seems a monstrous breach of etiquette. From here progress to the relentlessly grey, yet captivating, limestone expanse of the Burren, reminiscent of a lunar landscape. Then take a sojourn into Yeats' country before sauntering back in a loop through County Clare's gentle patchwork countryside.'
