  • Antrim

    • Antrim Hills Way

      3.8 badgers

      Brilliant figure of 8 loop taking in much of the Antrim Hills Way, including the excellent ridge above Sallagh Braes. Open mountain, with links on minor roads.

    • Antrim Town

      3.5 badgers

      Mix'n'match your own route from the Antrim Castle Grounds, Rea's Wood, and the Sixmile River path.

    • Ballyboley Forest

      3.0 badgers

      A decent amount of forest track, some single-track, and options for exploration outside the forest itself. Subject to recent extensive felling, so lots of the previous trails destroyed.

    • Ballycastle / Coolaveely Forest

      4.0 badgers

      Rough forest tracks with some fantastically fast descents. Also a great fun grassy descent to the forest off the open mountain of Knocklayde.

    • Ballycastle to Fair Head

      - badgers

      A four to five hour loop epic taking in the fantastic views at Fair Head.

    • Ballypatrick Forest

      - badgers

      A reasonable amount of forest track and a waymarked path, but no single track known. Good tourist facilities.

    • Barnett Demesne

      - badgers

      The Barnett Demesne Trails consist of a shared-use 3.4km green trail and a 3.9km blue trail with 3 red loop options (1.5km). Good for a blast round if you're in the area. With Ireland's first official purpose-built jumps park boasting no less than 6 lines of mouth-watering table-tops, doubles and hip jumps, if you like big air, you're in the right place!

    • Belfast Hills

      3.5 badgers

      Lots of options for a quick blast or a long epic with superb views overlooking Belfast City.

    • Belfast Loop Epic

      - badgers

      An excellent 50km+ loop taking in a lot of the best Belfast riding spots. 90% off road, with a mix of single track, urban cycle paths, forest trails and open mountain riding. Some spectacular views on a fine day.

    • Belvoir Forest

      3.6 badgers

      Network of forest tracks provide some good riding, about 4km of built (and lots of natural) single-track, and lots of bumps and jumps in through the trees. Loads of options along towpath to Mary Peters track, where further single track and jumps can be enjoyed.

    • Causeway Coast Way

      3.0 badgers

      Portstewart to Ballycastle along the 33-mile waymarked way, part of The Ulster Way. Lots of twisting singletrack, and more climbing than you would imagine. Superb scenery and great fun.

    • Cave Hill

      4.2 badgers

      Lots of twisting single track descents, including several downhill trails, through the trees. Great descents off the summit to both north and south, including the fantastic "quarry trail", and some other cool stuff over on the zoo side too.

    • Glenariff Forest

      - badgers

      Some very steep climbs on forest paths, and a superb ridge ride, but riding fast downhill here is FAR TOO DANGEROUS for you and the families using the forest.

    • Moyle Way

      3.0 badgers

      27 miles of way-marked way, following The Moyle Way section of The Ulster Way. Tremendous scenery, isolation, and the bike over the shoulder a time or two!

    • Ormeau Park, Belfast

      - badgers

      Ormeau Park is the oldest municipal park in Belfast and possesses a variety of riding from tight twisty natural singletrack to tree lined bitumen paths. There’s even a BMX track to brush up on your racing and jumping skills.

    • Randalstown Forest

      - badgers

      Forest on flat terrain on the shores of Lough Neagh, with a matrix of forest tracks, 3 way-marked routes, the World of Owls, and lots of deer. Great for a quick blast, and brilliant for young family, given the easy cycling.

    • Rathlin Island

      - badgers

      A very scenic and enjoyable 20 miles, mainly on small roads, around this gem off the North Coast. Well worth the trip. A birdwatcher's heaven, if that's your thing.

    • Slieveanorra Forest

      3.0 badgers

      Remote in the Heart of the Antrim Plateau. Extensive forest with many kms of forest track including a good tight climb to the radio masts on the summit.

    • Tardree Forest

      3.5 badgers

      Lots of mature singletrack through the trees, and plenty of fire-road options. Great when dry. Very enjoyable for a few hours, with flowing loops possible once you get to know the forest.

    • Woodburn Forest

      3.6 badgers

      Network of forest tracks (13kms), with lots of short single-track loops built by local riders.
