Pedal The Peninsula – Sunday 17th September - Discover Saintfield

Join Saintfield Development Association for its 5th Annual

Pedal The Peninsula

cycle ride on Sunday 17th September


Pedal The Peninsula 2016 - Sunday 4th September

The route will take riders on a scenic 56-mile circuit around Strangford Lough, starting and finishing in Saintfield.

This event has attracted an increasing number of cyclists each year, reflecting the growing popularity of what is an exhilarating but not strenuous ride through the rolling Down countryside.

The event is open to all classes of cyclists and the route will be pre-marked. Marshals will be situated at strategic points around the course to ensure nobody gets lost!

There will be a pace car for the first few miles and a sweeper car will follow the riders to assist with any problems they may encounter.

Registration takes place at the Downpatrick Street car park in Saintfield (behind Danske Bank) from 8.30 am and the ride commences at 9.30 am.

The entry fee is £20 per rider and includes refreshments halfway and at the finish, as well as the ferry crossing. Registration online will reduce the entry fee to £15. Full details of the route and online entry at


Funds raised will go towards providing entertainment for the children at the SDA Christmas Fair on Friday 1st December and other SDA community projects.

Come along and enjoy a great day out!

    On behalf of the Rockmount Rollers, many thanks to the SDA and the volunteers / marshals for a well organised cycle around the Peninsula yesterday. Well done. Looking forward to next year.
