Route : Traditional Mournes.
Distance : 60 km
Time : 1.25 hours with few stops (longer to factor in meals and stops for photos / walks etc.)
Bike Restrictions : Any bike should cope, good well maintained roads throughout.
A short time ago I posted a little write up about the ‘Alternate’ Mournes. The idea being to show people the other side of the Mournes that are often missed out by visitors, whether on a bike or four wheels. The ‘Alternate’ Mournes takes visitors from Newry, Co. Down and goes up, it takes in places like Slieve Gullion, Meigh, and Forkhill, places that are often avoided to their shady pasts. The ‘Traditional’ Mournes takes people from Newcastle, Co. Down and then up, and as you can see from the map below it takes in places such as Tollymore Forest Park, Spelga Dam and Silvent Valley.
Thanks for stopping by.
