Tour of Antrim. The Routes

3 draft routes for the tour…these will be tinkered with and ammended until we have driven the route for a final time the week before our trip. Ride with GPS has been chosen as you can download the route in multiple formats..

Friday – the Coastal Bit

90 miles long with a bit of climing in the middle. It takes about 20 miles for the road to open up but after Larne it is quite something.

Saturday. The Sperrins Bit

Not widely known, even inside Ireland, but this part of the North is quite something. Once we leave Portrush we start heading south towards Plumbridge and Gortin before getting into Omagh after only 60 odd miles. Take you time, stop for a bite to eat  – there is no rush.

Sunday – the road home..

Our final day skirts south of Lough Neagh and then heads back north to cross the Laggan and back to the Europa Hotel with a decent thirst ..ready for a night out in the heart of Belfast.
