The event is one of the biggest leisure road cycling events in Northern Ireland and with numbers hitting their highest for years in 2019, it's important to get your entry in soon. If you book before midnight on Saturday 30th November, you'll also receive a free 10th Anniversary Giant's Causeway Coast Sportive t-shirt!

The event starts and finishes in Ballycastle and provides participants with a great opportunity to cycle along one of the most spectacular stretches of coastline in Europe, and suitable for every level of cyclist. The shortest route of 35 miles is an excellent way for beginners to complete their first sportive. The mid length route is perfect for those who have tried the 35 miles and are ready for a new challenge. The longer routes of 80 and 115 miles are ideal meanwhile for the more serious cyclists with testing hills of over 20% gradients.

To capture the area's most famous attractions, the 35 mile route, the 'Causeway Coaster', takes in Bushmills Distillery, Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge, the Dark Hedges and the Giant's Causeway UNESCO World Heritage Site. The newer 60 mile route incorporates all of these sites, whilst also taking in some of the mythical Glens of Antrim, before finishing on the (in)famous Torr Head. The most popular 85mile route also brings participants through the mythical Glens of Antrim before following the spectacular Antrim Coast Road with the option of taking or bypassing the gruelling Torr Head Road. The longest route at 115 miles in length incorporates all of these elements and provides the ultimate cycling challenge, widely regarded as one of the toughest sportive routes in Ireland.

Don't forget to avail of the 15% discount for groups of 10 or over. For more information on this, email us at or drop us a PM on our Facebook page.
