Around Kilcormac, you have access to a range of cycling routes and tracks, of varying lengths and difficulty levels. Here is just a flavour of them:
Slieve Bloom Mountains
Discover the beauty of the majestic Slieve Bloom mountains on your bike for a totally new experience. The quiet roads and forestry trails of the Slieve Blooms are ideal for leisurely and safe cycling either on or off the surfaced road.
Lough Boora Discovery Park
Use a solo or tandem bike to explore 22km of trails, winding through the park’s lakes, wetlands and rich grasslands. There is a car free cycle path with a tarred surface that offers approximately 9km of track for everyone including children to enjoy.
Grand Canal Way
The Grand Canal Way is an historic walking trail which traverses Leinster from Ringsend in Dublin City to the River Shannon at Shannon Harbour in County Offaly. The route is punctuated by canal locks, lock houses and industrial architecture from bygone days. The route is currently being re-purposed as the Grand Canal Greenway. This greenway will follow the pleasant canal towpath, which was formally used by powerful draft horses pulling barges laden with goods and passengers.
The Offaly section of the Grand Canal Greenway will stretches from Edenderry in the east to Shannon Harbour in the west of the county. The Tullamore to Lough Boora Section of the Greenway links two landmark sites along Ireland’s Ancient East – Tullamore DEW and Lough Boora Discovery Park. The 22km journey westwards offers historic sites and rural tranquility in abundance.
