Moyola River Loop, in reverse!

This scenic route is an up and down loop from Draperstown via Weddell Bridge, Moybeg and Wood Road, crossing the Moyola River twice.

We will turn left to leave the car park at Workspace in Draperstown and turn right onto the B41 towards Tobermore. After 2.4km, we turn left onto the Weddell Bridge Road and cross the Moyola River and turn right onto Carnamoney Lane. We continue for 2.6km and then turn right onto Forgetown Road before crossing the Moyola River for the second time and turning left onto the Moybeg Road to reach the B41 again. We then turn left onto the B41 towards Tobermore and after 0.5km we turn right at the church onto the Wood Road and continue for 2.5km to Kilcronaghan before rejoining the B40 for the last section back to Draperstown.

We will have an optional coffee stop at the end in the village of Draperstown.

About

I am an enthusiastic leisure cyclist and I’ve been a member of Carn Wheelers Cycling Club since 2016. I enjoy group cycling because it’s good fun and builds great friendships that motivate me to cycle at times when the weather isn’t too inviting or when the route is hilly. I am keen to encourage and support more people in my community to cycle for fitness and health benefits.

A lovely morning for a relaxed bike ride on quiet country lanes around the Moyola River. Great cycling and conversation made the miles fly past and a coffee was the perfect finish to the cycle. Another very successful Community Bike Ride and great to see the confidence of new cyclists improving.
