I like the road as far as Cape Race. I’ll visit the lighthouse and then return home the same way rather than continuing the loop. Cape Race is one of my fav rides, especially on a sunny/blue sky day. Great place for pics.
In my opinion the Irish Loop is pretty boring. I think the last time I did it was around 2012. Johnnymac had to pull over to drink an energy drink to keep himself awake! I think I saw you on signal hill around 1pm.
