Wednesday Wobbly Wheelers

CTC NIDA Wednesday Wobbly Wheelers cycling alongside the Newry Canal

Trevor Spratt and Liam Goss travel the cycle path alongside the former Newry Canal.

The Wednesday Wobbly Wheelers meet regularly for a variety of full day cycle tours.  We frequently take our bikes on trains to visit a wider range of countryside.

On reaching the designated station, the usual format is to stop at a cafe for a cup of tea before heading off into the countryside.  During the summer, the riders normally split into two groups (the 'A team' and the 'Z team') according on their capabilities and preferred riding style.  Each group will find a suitable spot for a packed lunch and return to Belfast either by the same or a different station, as arranged.

Roy Dugan and John Kinahan plan these rides with military precision.  Sometimes the cyclists travel on two trains to dodge Translink restrictions.

Details of the meeting arrangements and destination of the next ride are available from Roy Dugan on 077 7972 4206 or

The rides usually start at Belfast Central Station but can be joined from any Translink station. Consult the timetables for details of connections.  Occaisional 'specials' include Portadown to Antrim via Slieve Gallion () and a visit to the Boyne Valley.
