B185 Coleraine - Portstewart
Leaving Portstewart

The B185 is a second route between Portstewart and Coleraine, more inland than the A2. It forms part of the Causeway Coastal Route. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in the late 1920s.

The road starts on the coast on the A2 and heads inland along the residential Station Road, following the route of the North West 200 motorcycle race. It takes some time for the road to enter open country. We then pass the buildings of Portstewart station, later renamed Cromore; this has been closed for some time although the line, to Portrush, still exists. Road and railway then run parallel for a couple of miles.

We continue south, with the railway line behind a hedge on the left. Presently a road, signed as a spur of the A29, bears off left as part of the Coleraine bypass and takes the bike race route with it; our road continues ahead into town. Houses then appear on the left whilst a campus of Ulster University is on the right; the main entrance is opposite University station. Road and railway now run adjacent for a short distance before we zigzag to end at a T-junction on the A29. Coleraine town centre is to the right.
