Upcoming Reliability Trials

There are two Reliability Trials on this coming Sunday with East Antrim Audi taking riders up the coast while Island Wheelers stay closer to Lough Neagh. Full details are given below.

East Antrim RT Sunday 2nd February
On Sunday 2rd February East Antrim Audi CC  will be holding its annual Reliability Trial.

The event sign on will be at Carrickfergus Castle car park and will be open from 9am. The sign on fee will be £5 and there will be a food stop.

There will be two groups on the road on Sunday, the “A” group will be taking a longer route of approx. 65 miles to the coast which is aimed at anyone racing or wanting a stiffer physical test and the “B” group will be following a shorter less demanding route covering approx. 50 miles. Both routes will have the option of a coffee stop at Ballygalley before continuing back to carrickfergus.

Whichever route you choose it will be well controlled and kept at a sensible pace. Click below for maps of the routes.



This is not regarded as a competitive event but riders should have a Non Competition licence as a minimum or equivalent  insurance in place.

The members of East Antrim Audi CC look forward to seeing everyone for a great day’s cycling.

Helmets are compulsory for all Cycling Ireland Approved Events.
