Short Routes

You don’t have to cycle for miles and miles to enjoy cycling in Northern Ireland.

Country parks, forest parks, tow paths and disused railways are home to short cycle routes under 10 miles.  Many are traffic-free so therefore perfect for some family fun.

Just Some Ideas

Antrim to Randalstown,

This route takes in a small section of the Loughshore Trail (NCN Route 94) from Antrim to Randalstown with views of a spectacular railway viaduct, the River Maine and the ajoining parklands of Shanes Castle.

Omagh Riverside Path to Gortnagarn,

This 5.5 mile flat cycle route samples part of National Cycle Network 92 and takes in some of Tyrone's most tranquil scenery.

The Carleton Trail, Dungannon

Why not take a driving/walking tour along the scenic Carleton Trail, sign posted throughout the Clogher Valley, with many interesting heritage sites along the way. Carleton’s Cottage also features on the newly launched Clogher Valley. ?

Belfast Lough,

A flat section of National Cycle Network along the shoreline of Belfast Lough taking in views of a truely historic shipyard.

Castle Archdale Family Cycling Trail,

Situated 15km north west of Enniskillen, this 6 mile cycle route weaves its way through 230 acres of mature forest situated on the shores of Lower Lough Erne, enabling the cyclist to explore over 1000 years of history.

Larne to Brown’s Bay,

Cross Larne Lough in a 30 foot ferry boat and cycle 2 miles to sandy Brown's Bay Beach. In a very short space of time you will be in a delightfully quiet and unspoiled part of Northern Ireland.
