take in the fabulous scenic route along the south Down coastline and
shores of Strangford Lough. There is a food stop arranged in

Just outside Quoile riders can decide which route to take
they can continue enjoying the coastal scenery and go the longer route

The club has been running this "Coastal" for over 10 years with the 2010 tour being the most successful with over 250 riders enjoying the day. This year we will again have motorcycle outriders and a broom wagon. All participants will receive a wrist band giving a telephone number in case of emergencies.
The fee for the event will be £10 (€10) for CTC or Cycling Ireland members. For those who are not members (and therefore do not have insurance cover) there is an additional fee of £1 (€1) for a one-day third party cover insurance. You also have the option of taking out an annual leisure licence from Cycling Ireland which will give you personal accident cover for the rest of the year. Price for the leisure (non-competition) licence is £9 (if you have not been a member of Cycling Ireland in the past) or £26 if you were a member before. This is under the condition that you also sign up to a cycling club. For more information on the Coastal tour or about Cycling Ireland licences please contact Martin Grimley, the club secretary, on 0789 9913865 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
