Organiser's Description

Cycle through the Glens with Ballycastle Cycling Club

Ballycastle Cycling Club host their 4th annual sportive on Saturday 22nd September 2018. All funds raised this year will go to Marie Curie.  Marie Curie give care and support to people living with any terminal illness, and their families, bringing light in the darkest hours.

On the day cyclists can choose between two routes (88km and 128km) through the scenic Glens of Antrim and North Coast. Leisure cyclists can enjoy the 88km circuit while the longer 128km loop will offer the more experienced cyclist challenging climbs and fast descents to test their level of fitness. Routes will be fully marshalled with motorbike outriders, broom wagon and first aid support. There are two food stops along the way (Carnlough & Cushendall) kindly sponsored by local business, Boyle’s Spar.

Cyclists can look forward to soup and sandwiches at the finish line and an opportunity to enjoy the banter with fellow riders.

The sportive leaves McQuillan GAC, Páirc MacUílín, 14-18 Whitepark Road, Ballycastle, Co. Antrim, BT54 6HA on Saturday 22nd September 2018 at 10am. Sign-on is from 9.00am at the same venue and car parking is available on site. Shower facilities and refreshments will also be available on return.
