Cycling in Foyle Valley, Co Londonderry, Northern Ireland

Foyle Valley

This award-winning twenty-one mile cycle route connects Derry City to the border towns of Lifford and Strabane.  The route itself is a mixture of traffic free paths and quiet country roads and lanes.

From close to the Tourist Information Centre in Londonderry, a new five mile section of off-road path runs south towards the Co Donegal border. From here, minor roads lead to the villages of Carrigans and Saint Johnston. After reaching Lifford the route crosses the Foyle River into the market town of Strabane finishing at the town's Tourist Information Centre.

Stop and visit some of the many attractions along the route like the Foyle Valley Railway Museum or Gray's Printing Press.

21 miles. OSNI 1:50 000, sheet 7&12.
