    Hi, New Irish Forum Member

    Hello everyone, my name's Amanda and I'm new to the forum. I'm also pretty new to bike riding so am after some pointers. Going to check out the forum some more now.

    Welcome Amanda,

    I was born in Fermanagh but I've been to Galway and have heard good things about Clare, I do plan to go there too at some point. All these places have amazing scenic bike trails so I'm not surprised you loved it. Ireland's a beautiful country, underrated by many.

    I haven't been to the north, just Dublin, Clare and Galway. As you might guess from my forum name, I also play fiddle so we organized the trip to get in as many trad sessions as possible. We also arrived for some of the most perfect weather of the summer!

    Hi Amanda. I've never been to Ireland. One of my friends lived in Dublin for several years; she and her husband did lots of cycling there. She became much more tolerant of cycling in rain and cool temperatures as a result.

    - Gray Trek Madone 4.7 road bike, mystery crack in top tube repaired by Calfee, Bontrager Affinity RXL saddle
    - Red Trek 6000 mountain bike, Bontrager Evoke WSD saddle

    Gone but not forgotten:
    - Silver Trek 2000 road bike
    - Two awesome and worn out Juliana saddles
