Magilligan 300

Due to travel restrictions I am unable to run the N2S this year.  However, thanks to some last minute planning we have the Magilligan 300.

Unfortunately it is only open to riders who are resident in Northern Ireland, and who have an annual Cycling Ireland Licence. Please note that 1-day Licences are NOT allowed for this event.

Entry is via event master only  – https://eventmaster.ie/event/8GxnF7qTV1

Start: Corner of Boucher Road/Balmoral Road.(as per Antrim 300) – 6am Sat 08/05/2021.

Route – MAGILLIGAN 300 – A bike ride in Belfast, Northern Ireland (ridewithgps.com)

Entries close Friday PM.

Route Description

Pretty much the N2S with the S bit cut out.  Instead of the Windy Hill we go along the coast and out to Magilligan point and have a look at the hills we didn’t get to do!

You can “Free route” through Belfast City centre on the return.

LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT A ROUT SHEET.

There will be no reception at finish or support.

Controls:  All Controls are by selfie / bikey – please get your bike and landmark / tourist sign.

Innisfree 300 / 400

Still taking entries – please try and get them in this weekend – though I’ve asked for entry central to be kept open till Wednesday.

If you’re tempted by the 300 – (Lord) Paul Burchmore’s advice is you miss the best 100.  (And, IMO, he’s right).

Details on event page.  https://www.audaxireland.org/events-calendar/gazetteer/400km-events/innisfree-400/

I may change the route into Enniskillen if I get round to it – though I say that every year!

Scratch that – side of old B&Q as always.
