Connecting Bangor to Newtownards, this cycle route is a mixture of traffic-free paths and quiet country roads and lanes. It starts off on the traffic-free North Down Coastal Path through Crawfordsburn Country Park before heading inland to Newtownards past the Clandeboye Estate on country roads.
Starting close to the Tourist Information Centre in Bangor, a five-mile section of traffic-free path runs along the coast to Helen's Bay. From here, minor roads lead you to Newtownards.
