Passing through the resort towns of Portrush and Portstewart, the route is well signed with many dedicated, cycle-friendly measures that offer traffic-free cycling for much of the route. The route features several short climbs and two longer climbs, one between Castlerock and Coleraine and another between Portrush and Bushmills.
Along the way, you can enjoy fine sea views from Barmouth Viewpoint across the mouth of the River Bann, and also over the sandy beach at Portstewart across to Scotland and the Mull of Kintyre. From Bushmills, you can follow a section of railway path to the Giant's Causeway Visitor Centre. The Giant's Causeway is a unique geological formation created by a volcanic eruption 60 million years ago - it is a World Heritage Site and a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
This stunning 23-mile cycle route runs along the North Atlantic coast from Castlerock to the Giant's Causeway via Coleraine, and forms part of National Route 93.
