Medium Routes

Medium cycle routes offer the perfect day ride. Ranging from 11 - 60 miles, they provide a great way to explore some of the more rural and picturesque areas of Northern Ireland. Take on the hills in the Mournes or the Sperrins or enjoy the sea air along the North Coast or Strangford Lough.

Just Some Ideas

Ecos Trail,

A rural journey across the Antrim Plateau to the North Channel.

Lower Bann Cycleway (short),

This route along the quiet roads on the east bank of the Bann provides a great family cycle from the bustling market town of Ballymoney and the Drumaheglis Marina and caravan/camping park.

Over Drumlins and Past Lakes, Hillsborough

A challenging but rewarding ride through ‘Drumlin Country’ with lots of short climbs and descents between rivers and small lakes.

Kilkeel Cycle Route,

A 28 mile cycle route exploring the South East corner of the Country. The route passes Carlingford Lough and Silent Valley Reservoir. Some hilly sections but your efforts are certainly rewarded with the views that this route offers.

The Downshire Trail, Hillsborough

This ‘lumpy’ ride linking Hillsborough and Moira is rewarding in places with great views over the Lagan Valley and Belfast Hills whilst following in the footsteps of the Marquis of Downshire.

Birches & Maghery Trails,

These trails embrace the south-west shores of Lough Neagh linking Maghery Country Park and Peatlands Park, River Blackwater, River Bann and Lough Neagh.
