The infamous U-turn road97 viewsTaking U-turns in the opposite direction on narrow roads is more challenging than you might think! Add in foot straps and a bit of target fixation and you have all the ingredients for a fall. Luckily I landed correctly with my weight across my forearm, and only suffered minor bruises and scrapes. I got much better at U-turns later on, necessitated by the lack of street signs (and the possibility that the few that existed had turned around in the wind).

Cliffs of Moher100 viewsUnfortunately the rain really cut down the visibility at this spectacular location. These cliffs are also known as the "Cliffs of Insanity" from the "Princess Bride".

Tower at Cliffs of Moher94 viewsIt was much too windy to walk up there!

Cliffs of Moher92 viewsI took advantage of a brief break in the rain for a better shot here.

My bike with tandem at Cliffs of Moher99 viewsOn my excursion to the Cliffs of Moher, I saw Heike and Wolfgang's tandem, so I parked next to them. I didn't see the two of them until I got back to the B&B though.
