The team at Lemonrock have been busy working on an upcoming project for 2020, and we’re excited to be sharing the details with you – so here’s a little background on how it all began:
A little while ago we met Holly Richardson at Ireland BikeFest 2019 in Killarney, Co. Kerry. Holly is a female motorcyclist from the UK, and works as a blogger & vlogger at All About Holly. She’s a motorcycle enthusiast and spends a lot of time in her garage working on her bike, leading group rides, and encouraging female riders to get started in the world of biking. Recently she’s been appointed a brand ambassador for Harley Davidson UK, and came to Killarney with HD to check out some new bikes, the amazing Wild Atlantic Way – and IBF of course! Check out her vlog at Ireland BikeFest below:
(The still from the video was taken at a place called Ladies View on the Ring of Kerry!)
So that got us thinking – how can we encourage female riders to explore Ireland on two wheels? Well our answer is this; to curate a motorcycle tour guided by All About Holly on the Wild Atlantic Way.
So that’s what we did! And this week it kicked off when Holly arrived at our Lemonrock base in Ireland’s Ancient East – Trim, Co. Meath. Of course we celebrated our get-together by getting all our biker friends together – both male & female – and set off for a Sunday ride to explore Ireland’s Ancient East, with a coffee break at Slane Castle. Here’s some snaps of the ride:
The Recce Trip
This week we set up a recce trip starting in Trim, Co. Meath and making our way north to Co. Donegal – where we joined the Wild Atlantic Way. From here we made our way south along the coast, stopping along the way in places like Aughris Head (Co. Sligo), Westport (Co. Mayo), Galway City, Lahinch (Co. Clare), Dingle and finally Killarney, both in Co. Kerry.
The purpose of this week has been to show Holly some other parts of the Wild Atlantic Way route that she hadn’t previously ridden, and for the Lemonrock Team to work on refining the route so that we can create a special tour for May 2020.
