The Coastal 2017

The climb out of Strangford is never easy

From the leisure cyclist to the more focused club rider, the coastal has something for everyone.  Two distances are offered, 60 miles and 80 miles, starting 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.

It’s all about the craic!

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.

 

This year our chosen headline charity is:

Alzheimer's Society

At least £5 from each entry will go to this and other worthy causes.

Many thanks in advance to the event sponsors Chain Reaction Cycles Belfast flagship store who will be providing mechanical support before and during the event.
