Ballinagleragh – Ballinamore – Drumshanbo (Ride 5)

This ride is definitely for the more experienced cyclist, there are some testing climbs, but you will be well rewarded by spectacular views. It is also recommended to only follow this route in good weather. Part of this route follows the Leitrim Way (a long distance walking route). Please note that in bad weather on Bencroy, you should keep to the low-route via Aghacashel.


There have been incidences this summer (2017) of cyclists getting lost on the Southern Loop between Clones and Carrick-on-Shannon, due to inadequacy signage.   On investigation it appears that directional signs on certain sections of the route are missing, hidden by overgrown vegetation and in some cases have been vandalised to point in the wrong direction.

Therefore anyone planning to cycle the route solely by following the signage would be strongly discouraged from doing so.

We have passed on our concerns to the relevant councils and hope that these issues will be resolved quickly.  Thank you for considering the Kingfisher Cycle Trail.
