Family friendly cycling in Offaly and its surrounds - Mount Lucas Windfarm
In the fifth of our daily features on family friendly cycling in Offaly and its surrounds, we are highlighting the Mount Lucas Wind Farm.
It’s not just wind energy that’s being produced at Mount Lucas Wind Farm; Bord na Móna Powergen has completed the development of a 7km walk / cycleway around the farm. This colour coded route is proving a big hit with fitness and biodiversity enthusiasts because as well as providing pathways for walkers, runners, joggers and cyclists, the site also allows people to view firsthand a cutaway bog and its revegetation
With approximately 500 people using the facility per week, and car parks at the northern and eastern ends of the site, the park is going from strength to strength. For more information on Mount Lucas Wind Farm as a cycling destination, check out https://www.mountlucaswindfarm.ie/amenities/
So why not strap on the bikes, pack the helmets and see where your bike takes you this Bike Week (12 – 18th September 2021)
