Lites Outweighed the Heavyweights

With a contingent of hardcore riders heading for Torr Head (including the trip there and back), the Lites outweighed the heavyweights today. The wind was coming from the South, so I suggested we head to Kinallen and then anyone looking a longer one could head to Scarva with me, while the rest could head for Ballynahinch.

That's pretty much how it went down. Up to Temple Golf Club, then Boardmills, Bailies Mills and Annahilt. Lanterne played his cards well to take the green jersey up to Kinallen where Derek, Philip, Martin and Neil turned left. 
Stephen & me turned right, through Corbet, Cappagh and Loughbrickland to Scarva. After saying hello to familiar faces we saddled up and cut through Drumlish to Laurencetown and through Blackskull and Hillsborough home. Stephen predicted rain coming in at 13:00 and sure enough a few spots landed, but we lit the afterburners and outran it home. Ballpark 105k, mission accomplished.

Lite run -
