Mid-Ulster Cycle Route

The Mid-Ulster Cycle Route is a fantastic long-distance route taking you from Tynan to the shore of Lough Neagh, before veering west to Fermanagh and finishing at the border in Pettigo. On the way, you’ll pass Newtownstewart and the Sperrin Mountains.

The largely on-road route starts in Tynan and travels on-road to the small hamlet of Benburb, best known for the Battle of Benburb that took place there in 1646.

From here, the route continues on to Dungannon which has a fantastic 70-acre park centred around an idyllic still-water lake.

The route through Dungannon is traffic-free, but you re-join roads as you travel on to Donaghmore, over the Ballinderry River and into Cookstown and Newtown Stewart.

From here the route travels onto the small village of Pettigo, travelling past the beautiful Lough Derg.

The Lough covers 2,200 acres with a shoreline of 13 miles and is great for boat and shore angling. It also offers excellent pike fishing.
