An easy bicycle ride along the River Dodder from the Grand Canal Dock. Returning from The Dropping Well pub in direction Milltown
"The Ride" from the album "This New Morning" (2012) made by Luka Bloom will inspire you to get on your bike.
Biking the Grand Canal is one of my favorites. The cycle tracks along the canal guides you safely and easy from the urban life to the rural areas outside Dublin. I passed Lucan when I was biking another route and decided to make a round trip that included both the Grand Canal, the village Lucan and the Phoenix Park.
Take your bike and follow the "Arthur's Way" trail. The route starts at Leixlip and ends at Oughterard graveyard where the Arthur Guinness rest.
The trip is only 16 km but you should spend some time visit the landmarks connected to one of the worlds most famous brewers.
