The Tim Healy Pass, Co. Cork, Ireland

This past week I’ve been down in south west Co. Cork in Ireland with the parents and my brother. The riding has mostly been short ish easy going rides along the undulating coast roads, but I knew there were some more serious rides around. We were going to drive the pass anyway but when we turned northwards off the coast road I stopped the car and saddled up. The climb its self is pretty alpine in nature, starting gently before rising through a series of hairpins and getting steeper. There is one last kick after the final hairpin before the summit. From there the road drops away into Co. Kerry, hugging the walls of the valley overlooking the lake. Whilst I rode the pass, the family drove ahead of me, stopping to allow my Dad to shoot the photos you see here.
