    Check your brakes before this one (seriously)! A fantastic scenic ride using the Torr Road then back along the main road into Ballycastle. Don't reverse it unless you are a masochist as the gradients are just about OK this way round but not in reverse. There is a cafe in Cushendun but it was shut so don't rely on it for provisions. Toilets at Cushendun in main car park.
