Giant's Causeway Coast Sportive 2013
07 September 2013 - 07 September 2013
The Giant’s Causeway Coast Sportive, in association with Chain Reaction Cycles Flagship Store Belfast, will take place on Saturday 7th September 2013 offering participants a magnificent way to cycle along one of the most spectacular stretches of coastline in Europe and has been created with every level of cyclist in mind.
On the day there will be 3 routes on offer, the shortest route is a 35 mile ‘Causeway Coaster’ and takes in Bushmills Distillery (Ireland’s oldest whiskey distillery), Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and the Giant’s Causeway UNESCO World Heritage Site. The most popular 80 mile route traverses the magical Glens of Antrim before following the Causeway Coastal Route with the option of taking on or bypassing the gruelling Torr Head Road. The longest route (115 miles) incorporates both of these shorter distances and provides the ultimate cycling challenge which is widely regarded as one of the toughest sportive routes in Ireland.
