Cushendun to Belfast Cycle

The A2 Coast Road to Larne

This is a real ride of two halves. Or more like three-thirds. You start the day by riding high into the Antrim Glens before descending to Waterfoot and then riding for a flat 38km along the beautiful coast road to Larne, passing through several villages.

To our knowledge it is the longest unbroken stretch of coastal road on the island of Ireland.

Distance: 108km
Climbing: 1046m
Difficulty: very hard

For much of the second half of this ride you can see Scotland across the Irish Sea.
