Quiet country roads around the south of Lough Neagh.

  1. Rolling: 30 Miles from Omagh to Moy is up and down  – 1600 ft of climbing but nothing steeper than 4%
  2. Mixed: 30 miles takes you through Portadown – crossing the Upper Bann for the 1st time ( you crossed the Lower Bann twice on Saturday) and then into Hillsborough.
  3. Relief: Have a pint in Hillsborough then its only 15 miles to the finish.

Food

Plenty of places to stop (once you get to Moy) these our our suggestions:

  1. 30 miles. The Moy. 4 pubs and RYCO coffee shop. fill yer boots.
  2. 45 miles. Portadown. Treat yourself at KFC or McDs – etc etc
  3. 60 miles. Royal Hillsborough. Plenty of tea rooms and coffee shops in Main Street.
  4. Dinner @ The Europa 1930-2000.

GENERAL

Just take your time. Roads should be quiet – before you get to Belfast – so enjoy them.

Once at the Europa we will be packing bikes so get checked in, get changed and have a pint in the Crown.
