Take on this cycling challenge around Lough Neagh, Ireland and Great Britain's largest lake!

Lap the Lough is a longstanding, annual event with around 2,500 cyclists taking part each year.

Starting from Moy & Charlemont - a beautiful village bordering the counties of Tyrone and Armagh with great bars, cafés and restaurants and lots of accommodation - you'll enjoy a great day in the saddle as you circumnavigate Lough Neagh.

You'll tackle 144km or 89 miles of cycling, climbing 1,030m or 3,379ft on this scenic route.

The ride is fully supported - you'll get water/energy stops, mechanical support, sweeper, motorbike marshals and 1st Aid support.
