Stories, information and comments from Ballaghbeama Gap climbers
Story by Greet Luursema from Groningen, The Netherlands, submitted on 09/04/2010
The Ballybeama Gap was the most beautiful pass we ever have cycled.The landscape was simply stunning and reminded us of the film Lord of the Rings. Although the weather was very nice, it was still Into Mordor. The road was very narrow, just like the pass. Amazing.
This term could be also used for the behaviour of a couple of motorists. To pass a cyclist, who is forcing herself to the top over a narrow road of gravel with a deep chute next to the road, with 5 centimetres is at least very stupid.
