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 Town Loop,

Antrim is a great town for cycling with opportunities to explore the National Cycle Network and other traffic free paths. An excellent circular route exists around the town with traffic-free waterside cycling and walking the main attraction.

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.

Dundrum Coastal Path,

Larne to Brown’s Bay,
