Route Description:

Draft route is here: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/4326968 but is subject to change.

For those who missed out on the Antrim 300, this offers a shorter route to the infamous Torr Head.  For those who did the Antrim 300, this offers a chance to go the other way.   Update – for 2016 we’ll be going the same way.

Expect plenty of scenery.

Belfast's big yellow cranes
Samson  and Goliath

From the Gates of Stormont we will pass through Belfast passing Samson and Goliath, which span the largest dock in the world, and the site of the construction of of RMS Titanic, in the heart of Titanic Quarter.

Mt Slemish
Slemish

From there we leave Belfast behind and take in the views of Slemish Mountain, the legendary first known Irish home of Saint Patrick, on the way to the North Coast which we join at Glenarm.

We follow the coast to Cushendall where we leave her briefly to see if we can find Loughareema – the vanishing lake.

We then head back to the coast over Torr Head, but for those who remember this from the Antrim 300, don’t worry, we’re going the other way.

We then follow the coast again, leaving it to bypass Larne before arriving back in Belfast.
