Exploring on two wheels is a great way to see Northern Ireland. Here are some of the best cycle routes around the country.


While you can ride the route at any time of the year, serious cyclists might want to sign up to the Man of Sperrin race. The 69-mile route covers five peaks as well as the Glenelly Valley, a dramatic landscape with spectacular views. You can also do a shorter two-peak route if you prefer.


A lap of Lough Neagh is a wonderful route for touring cyclists. Spend a few days camping or staying in bed and breakfasts along the 113-mile loop of the largest freshwater lake in the United Kingdom.


Make your way to Ballycastle to take on the 35-mile route to the Giant’s Causeway and Bushmills. Along the way you will see the basalt rock formations of the causeway and the Bushmills whisky distillery, two of the biggest attractions in Northern Ireland.


Check out the Ballymoney Cycle Route to see the market town of Balleymoney and the spectacular moorlands of North Antrim.


In the south of the country, take a ride along the circular Newcastle-Lough Island Reavy route, a lovely ride of some 25 miles. If the weather is good, stop off at Murlough Beach on your way round, and appreciate some of the best scenery around.

Hotel Joule

I arrived in Dallas on a cloudy afternoon and, luckily, traffic was light as I drove my rental car into the city in just less than 30 minutes. The Hotel Joule was built in the 1920s in the Neo-Gothic style and is a city landmark in the heart of the business district.

Under $100: El Raval, Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella (or “Old City”) is often packed with tourists who wander up and down Las Ramblas spending way too many euros on overpriced paella and sangria. But the border neighborhood of El Raval is just a few steps from the bustle, but worlds away from the exorbitant prices.
