The next chapter in the social outings

MTB Donegal Chapter 2: Dunlewey

Chapter 2 sees MTB Donegal moving to Dunlewey to explore the forest roads along Lough Nacung with the back drop filled with with Mount Errigal.


Beginner Friendly Route

Again this trip is designed for beginners and the pace will be set to suit the beginner, this is a social outing and not a race to prove your pace, We are more interested in letting the first timers find theirs and to allow them to grow into the sport.

We again encourage all levels to attended to encourage the beginners and to take a break from the normal flat out training and enjoy the views for a change.

The route is an out and back route totalling 15.6km, although this is a shorter route from the first outing it packs a few punchy climbs at the start and on the way back, but nothing to serious.

Remember don’t be afraid to stop or push your bike for a bit, we all have done it sometime along the way and I still do….

The route has a short tarmac section before heading through the The Mysterious Ruined Village of Glentornan before entering the forest roads that lead along the lough as far as the Gweedore bridge. The route can be extended to 20km with a short distance on the main road if anyone is interested in this route leave a comment below and I will share the maps.


We are setting off from the carpark of the Dunlewey Centre at 10am so please on be time and be ready to roll out at 10 to ensure others don’t get cold waiting around.

I look forward to seeing you all on Sunday 17th for another great run out and hopefully we get the same numbers again.
