I road along with the tandem briefly, but parted ways when I headed north to go back over Windy Gap again. It was so nice the first time, I decided it would make for a nice route back south.
Shortly after leaving the tandem, I saw these two, but then went several days again before seeing any other cyclists. I really only saw cyclists when I was on busier roads. I feel sad that so many are missing out on the tiny lanes, the thing that makes cycling in Ireland so special.
