The Comber Greenway is a 7 mile traffic free section of the National Cycle Network running from Belfast to Comber along the old railway line which closed in 1950. It is a flat bitmac linear path. The Comber Greenway starts at the western end of Queen Elizabeth Bridge in Belfast, however the traffic free cycling section begins at Dee Street in East Belfast close to the Harland and Wolff shipyard. From the Holywood Arches to Dundonald the Greenway provides a tranquil green corridor through East Belfast with points of interest along the way including the CS Lewis Statue, views of the Harland & Wolff Cranes, Parliament Buildings at Stormont and the Belfast Hills.
At the Comber Road in Dundonald the route diverts briefly from the old railway line along a section of riverside path to Millmount Road before continuing to Comber through a rural landscape, passing the Billy Neill (MBE) Soccer Centre of Excellence with views of adjacent farmland and Scrabo Tower. Cyclists and walkers can cross the River Enler and farm lanes using a number of reinstated bridges before arriving at Comber.
