About this event
From the leisure cyclist to the more focused club rider, the coastal has something for everyone. The basic route covers approximately 60 miles, whilst the longer route is 80 miles. Both routes start from Dromara Village Football club located on the Rathfriland Road, Dromara
The tour offers a great day out with like minded people, going at a pace that suits you. The first half of ride takes in a scenic loop around the south Down coast to Strangford, where a generous spread of food will be provided in our marquee on the village green, allowing the riders to take on well needed energy whilst they rest and enjoy the views across the lough to Portaferry.
After leaving Strangford, just outside Quoile riders can decide which route to take back. Either they can continue enjoying the coastal scenery and go the longer 80miles route or take the more direct 60miles route back to Dromara via Ballynahinch (see route maps below). Once back in the clubhouse at Dromara FC the riders can shower, change, and enjoy a well earned chance to relax amongst friends.
