A pleasant loop which includes some of the finest scenic views of Lough Derg. The North Tipperary Cycle Network, with the town of Nenagh at its hub, offers three loops varying in distance with numerous shorter alternative loops. Each cycle offers pleasant views of the local countryside while Loops 1 and 2 provide stunning lakeshore panoramas. Numerous picnic stops are dotted along the route as well as a number of award-winning pubs and restaurants. This loop, the shortest of the three, showcases some of the more spectacular views of Lough Derg, before descending into Castlelough and on through a working farm, along a slight off-road section (suitable for all bike types) to the pretty lakeshore village of Garrykennedy.
