Booking Now Open for 2019's Giant's Causeway Coast Sportive

Friday, September 21, 2018

Returning to the north coast for its 9th year, the Giant’s Causeway Coast Sportive, in association with Decathlon, is set to make its arrival to Ballycastle earlier next year, with the event now taking place on Saturday 22nd June instead of September.

The date is not the only aspect changing for 2019, as the organisers are also introducing a fourth route. In addition to the 35, 85 and 115-mile route choices, there will also be a 60-mile route. This new route is ideal for cyclists wanting to take on a more challenging route than the 35-mile option.

The new route encompasses some of the best sections of the 35-mile and 85-mile routes, including the Causeway Coast, Dark Hedges and Bushmills, as well as the magical Glens of Antrim, Cushendun and the epic Torr Head.

Participants also benefit from event sponsorship from popular companies Volvic Water, Tayto, High5 and Muller Rice, all of whom provide plenty of treats for the day.

Check out the video from 2018’s event and get inspired for next year:
