An alternative shorter version of this is offered (Inishowen 60 mile) for those who wish to experience some of the beauty of the area on their bicycles. The route uses much of the above-described areas with the exception of the two major climbs at Mamore and Kinnego. A beautiful and still very challenging day's fun on your bicycle.
The very best of luck on your challenge
