    Easter bike trip in Northern Ireland

    Inspired by Cyclezealot's pics, I thought I would share some pics from my Easter tour, Saturday to Tuesday, in County Tyrone and Co. Londonderry in Northern Ireland.

    I went with 7 people from my touring club. We took the train from Belfast to Portadown, then rode about 30 miles over increasingly hilly terrain, to Moneymore, where we stayed at a B&B until Tuesday.

    We did day rides Sunday and Monday before riding back to Portadown Tuesday to catch the train back to Belfast.

    It was nice to get a bit of fresh air and exercise. I am not very motivated to ride alone, so I enjoy these group outings.

    The pics are big so I will post links instead.

    The road to Maghery

    Typical B road in the area

    A quite famous mountain whose name escapes me. . . No, wait, I remember it now: Slieve Gullion

    Normally in Ireland, all you see are sheep and cows, so this was a lovely surprise

    Typical terrain, typical views, on the ride from Moneymore to Maghery

    More typical B roads, many hills. You can see the gorse is in bloom on the right

    Typical local pranksters The same sign going the other way had been altered to read "Peas on Road"

    Thanks for the pics, Lolly Pop. My wife wants us to take tandem trip to Ireland when we are in the UK this summer. So much to do/see and so little time to do it......
