One option for the day is to hug the coastline to take in a stunning cycle along by Torr Head to the village of Ballycastle where we stay for two days.
One attractive option on the rest day is to take the ferry to explore Rathlin Island, which is some five miles out in the Atlantic.
We cycle along the coast where we can visit the famous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and then along to view the hexagonal rock formations at the Giant's Causeway. From there we head to the village of Bushmills where we can visit the famous whiskey distillery. The tour finishes off with a transfer back from Coleraine to Belfast city for a final night together.
