2nd Annual Coast run & bbq 2B FEATURED IN MR2ONLY 11 Years ago Karma: 217
I know we haven't quite got to the Fermanagh drive yet, but I thought I should post up the details of the next drive we are organising in 'the north'.

We will be driving the Antrim coast road and having a BBQ along the way. The link below shows the planned route starting at Belfast and heading to Bushmills. I am tempted to reverse this and start at Bushmills (ish) and head to Belfast, just so that it is different to last years drive.

CLICKY FOR ROUTE

Can I ask that you all let me know if you are thinking of attending by adding your name to the list (copy and paste to your post as usual). Final numbers/attendance will be confirmed closer to the date.

Cheers

Re:2nd Annual Antrim Coast Drive & BBQ - 6th June 11 Years ago Karma: 217
Yeah, date would be handy eh???

This drive will be on Sunday 6th June.

We got about 20 (or more) cars last year which I think was the biggest event organised in Northern Ireland - GWrinkle will confirm. It would be great to get a similar turn out this year

If anyone want to head up here the night before the drive then you are more than welcome. I can organise accommodation the night before and we could even head out for a drink or 6

We could possibly build in a trip to the Giants Causeway if we started early enough, I will do some research

As a sweetner, here are some of my photos from last year ....

Great run last year, the other way round might be a good option as the bike traffic was mental last year.

Just a quick observation, the monday is a bank holiday in Ireland so you'll have a nice day off after the run

We are thinking about doing this drive the opposite way to last years, hence starting at the north coast and heading to Belfast. If anyone is to stay over then dont rule out somewhere on or towards the north coast.

Other option that I was thinking was www.ballycanalmanor.com/ these guys are about 1.5miles from me so I could give you a guided tour of the Moira village nightlife on the Saturday

Best thing ... decide if you guys are heading up on the Saturday and between us northerners we can help with arrangements and/or join yous

£30-£40 per night B&B sounds very Reasonable for Ballycanal Manor. Looks really nice too, bet we could get a few good shots of the 2's there, Count me in!!

Nowt booked yet, just waiting to see if the route is confirmed and then we can liaise with spanky and the rest on where would be best to stay, i'm pondering whether to get a car cam for the trip, would need a fairly big sd card but in theory would get approx 24hours use out of it.

Like a camera mounted outside the car? That would be cool! Sd cards are fairly cheap, the one i have is 4gb and it can store up to 8k basic jpeg images, it was only about €20 or something

Re:2nd Annual Antrim Coast Drive & BBQ 10 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 217
So far the list of attendees for this drive (MR2.ie and MR2OC) is:

Slipslide
MadMattyTurner
dshamrock2000 (Stay Saturday Night)
Quandry
SWAGGER (Stay Saturday Night)
Mr2 Gal
mnixon (stay saturday night)
spanky
AndrewMcAlonan
Snulty
mnixon
GWrinkle
ricky2
drizzt
3913mark
pope_acute
pigpen
fenixgears
Joey


That's 19 cars so far

I will be setting a limit of 25 cars at this drive as it is impossible to manage beyond that. Anyone who wishes to add their name after that will be put on a reserve list to take the place of any that drop out.

My advice would be to get your name down now.

In terms of those staying, I can make enquiries about accommodation in my village then we could head out for a meal and a couple of drinks on the Saturday night. If you would rather stay in Belfast or on hte North coast then let me know and we will see if anyone can advise. Ricky had also suggested the 5 corners which I think is in Ballyclare or Larne.

Cheers all
