On yer Bike
by Pepe  22 May 2021
There are plenty of bike trails on Downs Hill now, which makes it possible to leave good forestry paths and head straight up, more or less, following ascending bike trails - keep an eye out for mountain bikes obviously. I only encountered two of them on this visit, from Point A upwards. On my way to A I asked a friendly local man for directions. He advised me to park at the Grove pub and walk up. "You'll be lucky to find a place to park up there," he said, "there are no parking signs, cones and lengths of red and white tape everywhere to prevent people parking on verges."
He was right, there was so much red and white I thought Cork had won yet another All-Ireland. I did manage to find a spot adjacent to (but not blocking!) a commercial premises. This was my fourth local 100 top of the day and in the knackered state I was in no way was this pair of legs willing to walk up and down from the Grove (which would add approx 3 kilometres to the walk). Parking seems to be a big issue hereabouts, so if you have the time (and not involved in a top-bagging odyssey), then making a good roadwalk out of it, before you tackle the trails, might be in order.
