About

The route starts by heading north and east, over towards the seven stone circles at Beaghmore. The wide open skies, quiet roads and the rich colour palette of the blanket bogland, make this perfect cycling country. From Beaghmore climb in the direction of Gortin, crossing the Owenkillew River and passing standing stones and cairns strewn in the surrounding fields. Turn south towards Greencastle where the road rises before dropping down into Mountfield. Swing right, taking care crossing the main road and climb once again to Loughmacrory and then into the small town of Carrickmore, take a breather here before the tough return leg.

The route then climbs around Cregganconroe up to the remarkable Creggandevesky Court Tomb. It was revealed when the blanket bog was removed in the 80s. Back in the saddle pull yourself to the top of the climb and get a well deserved descent, finishing at An Creagán.
