Preparation for Giro Italia Stage 2 on Sat 10 May

29 April 2014
A brief meeting has been arranged at the club house on Mon 5 May at 19:30 to discuss preparation for the Giro Italia Stage 2 on Sat 10 May.

All club members are welcome to attend.

On Saturday 10 May, stage 2 of the Giro d'Italia will come through Ballymena. Roads will close from 09:30 to 12:30 for pre-events and the race to take place. The actual race should be going through the town just before midday. 

The proposed route entails:
  • A26 from Antrim
  • Seven Towers Roundabout
  • Antrim Road
  • Queens Street
  • Harryville Bridge
  • North Road
  • Ballymoney Road
  • A26 to Ballymoney

The council and BRC would appreciate it very much if all club members, friends and family can help provide a guard of honour on Harryville Bridge. We have invested in a large banner along with balloons in the Giro colours to be placed near or on the bridge.
