Description

This is a fantastic route through some of Fermanagh and Leitrim's beautiful countryside, you have to cycle it to appreciate it. We start off from Garrison village, skirting the shores of Lough Melvin into the village of Kinlough where we will stop for refreshments, if needed. From there, we cycle through the Glenade Valley, past Eagle's rock and Arro mountain to the village of Manorhamilton, where we will stop again for coffee and a cake or two. We will then take a short climb out of Manorhamilton with a fantastic downhill section into the village of Rossinver and then back to Garrison.

There is a bit of everything in this cycle and it is do-able with a reasonable bit of fitness. Nobody will be left behind and we all will stick together. The slowest cyclist in the group will be myself so nobody will be forgotten! Keep an eye on the weather and also your emails because if the weather is not favourable, I will cancel this cycle. Hope to see you there!

I have a keen interest in leisure cycling which I have been doing for 12 years. I have taken part in several multi day cycles and sportives, and I would like to encourage other like minded people to experience cycling and the fantastic social side attached to it.
