It seems like a pipe dream. Or, perhaps, an ambitious project one wheel short of the full bicycle.

But, a proposal to build a 600–mile network of uninterrupted pathway through Northern Ireland’s rural landscape could be about to hit the road to reality.

The plan would allow for the construction of a greenway network, connecting major cities and minor towns, over a 25–year period.

Five greenways, traffic–free paths used largely by cyclists and walkers, already exist in Northern Ireland, including the Comber Greenway and Foyle Valley Cycle Route.
