Sunday Rides

CTC NIDA cycling in County Antrim

David Jeffery and Jimmy Winters lead the Sunday cyclists through lanes near Ballyclare.

Typically 10 to 20 cyclists take part in these weekly full day tours.  The riders depart at 09:30 am from one of four points around Belfast and travel at a leisurely speed on minor roads.  We cover a distance of 40 to 60 miles, returning to Belfast about 5:00 pm (winter) to 7:00 pm (summer). 

The riders stop for about an hour for a packed lunch in a field or under cover.  In summer we stop again for afternoon tea. 

Given a reasonable level of cycling fitness these rides can be regarded as of a social rather than a sporting nature.  A number of longer distance rides take place during the summer.
