All routes begin in Delamont Country Park before setting out of the park onto marshalled roads around the picturesque drumlins of County Down. If you register and donate by Thursday 29 September, all you'll need to do is sign into the cycle in Delamont. You must also sign out on your return to the park by 3pm.


How we'll support you:

  • Smiling marshals along the route to encourage you and to keep you on track.

  • A support vehicle provided by Podium 4 Sport.

  • First Aid services.

  • A couple of refreshment stops along the route to keep you at your best.

  • You will be warmly welcomed back into Delamont Country Park after your cycle to enjoy a free ‘Good Little BBQ’ with sausages donated by our friends at The Good Little Company

Sign-in on the day (and registration for anyone who has not pre-registered) will begin at 7:45am with the 120km route beginning at 8am. The BBQ will be served between 12-3pm so participants are advised to judge their start time to return to the park for this. Please make sure that you've set off on your route by 11am!
