Description

The route is a mostly flat route from Draperstown to Magherafelt via Desertmartin and returning via Curran and Tobermore.

We will leave the car park at Workspace in Draperstown and turn left on the high street to take us onto the B40 Desertmartin Road. We continue through the village of Desertmartin and then go left for Magherafelt. On the outskirts of the town, we will turn left at the roundabout outside the Rainey School and head out the Tobermore Road before turning right onto the Hospital Road and then left onto Ballyheifer Road. The road then rolls pleasantly up and down until we reach the Toberhead Road turning for Curran. We cycle through the village and along a flat quiet road to Tobermore Village. Tobermore main street is a bit of a climb but we will take this at a steady pace and stay together. We turn left at the church at the top of the hill onto the Wood Road and continue 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.
