Along the Banks of the Royal Canal

Along the Banks of the Royal Canal
A GUIDE LIKE NO OTHER... In 2014 the author, who hadn't been on a bike in 30 years, resolved to cycle 180 kilometres in a single day. To insure against permanent bodily harm he began training "along the banks of the Royal Canal", the Irish inland waterway made famous through Brendan Behan's song "The Auld Triangle". In addition to a path to fitness he found a window into Ireland's history, heart and soul. He also just happened upon the proposed route of what will become one of Europe's finest greenway cycling trails.
