This route along the quiet roads on the east bank of the Bann provides a great family cycle from the bustling market town of Ballymoney and the Drumaheglis Marina and caravan/camping park.

There are two parallel roads only one mile apart with lots of linking roads and so there are a number
of circular routes that you can take depending on the distance you wish to travel.
From Ballymoney we recommend travelling
west through Balnamore village towards the marina set on the banks of the River Bann. From here head south towards Kilrea on the quiet road which offers good views of the river.
After the Angler’s Rest pub you may like to leave the route to explore the old canal and weir at the fish farm. To return take the first left turn south of the canal and travel north along the parallel inland road looking across rich farmland with the Antrim Hills in the background. From Bendooragh you can
either cycle the busy "B" road to Ballymoney or travel straight ahead return to Ballymoney via Balnamore.
This route has accessible toilet facilities.
