Really enjoyed this route. Easy gradients and pretty good road surfaces make the going good. Some really nice picturesque streches along the shores of Lough Neagh, with fine views of the Lough. Also good to see mouth of Upper Bann. Only problem is the notorious Lough Neagh flies, so great care is needed to avoid getting them in eyes and mouth - a potential hazard. Would probably be better outside summer "fly season". Would definitely like to do this route again.
