Whether you’re a cycling fan or not, the advice being given out ahead of the Giro d’Italia’s arrival in the borough next month is ‘be prepared’.

Northern Ireland will host ‘The Big Start’ of the race, welcoming 200 of the world’s top cyclists, from May 9-11 and they will pass through Antrim on their journey around the North Coast and back to Belfast on Day Two (May 10).

Attracting over 140,000 visitors with 42,000 expected to be out of state, it is a huge event capable of generating a minimum £10 million media coverage which will be viewed by an estimated 800 million people worldwide.
