    H. I live in Ireland. I am deaf and disabled but a trike rider (when its working). If I did this, could I do just the Saturday please?

  2. Hi Peter, thanks for your interest. Yes, Saturday only is not a problem, you can just enter for the 25 mile ‘Tweed and Twine’ cycle at http://www.oldvelos.com/ovc-overview/ From previous experience the average speed on this route is 12-15 mph (others will do it faster) and there is the possibility of calling a halt at Curraghmore House if required. The route is a mix of Greenway, open road and 3 miles of manageable gravel in the Curraghmore estate. Hope that helps, Brendan
