The next 30 days
Sun 5th Jul 11:00
After a recent recce of the Red Route around the Ardgartan Peninsula, Dave L. has decided to cancel this particular outing.
The trail has many sections where the combination of inclines (both up and down) and surfaces make it impossible to cycle.
Without perfect weather to dry out the trail, it would be too dangerous trying to descend inclines in excess of 20% while holding onto a bike.
We hope to offer an alternative in the near future.

Open to all - families and beginners.
Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
All participants under the age of 18 must have a signed CTC Parental Consent Form (available under our Info link).
Aimed at the less experienced cyclist, those returning to cycling or those wishing to discover local cycle paths, cycle routes and quieter roads - and cycle around 10 miles.
The route will use NCN73 to head towards Kilwinning before returning via minor roads in Stevenston.
Sun 12th Jul 10:00
For the second month in a row we begin at Cumnock.
Another circular route however, this time Dave L. heads east towards Glespin and Crawfordjohn before looping back via Leadhills, Wanlockhead and Sanquhar.
The longest Main Ride of the year at 60 miles.
Lunch will be in a cafe at Wanlockhead Centre.
Wed 15th Jul 10:30
Malcolm heads for Loch Doon on this outing.
We will go up the road alongside Loch Doon before heading over Forest Drive to Stinchar Bridge and the long downhill to Straiton.
Skinny road tyres will struggle on Forest Drive.
Suggest absolute minimum 25mm tyre width.
Despite midweek rides normally being picnic lunches, Malcolm might stop at The Buck tearoom in Straiton for soup, cakes, etc. before tackling the climb back over to Dalmellington.
Approx. 30 miles.
Sun 26th Jul 10:00
Occasionally we throw in an Easy Going route which is longer than 25 miles.
John Muir has come up with such a route which tops out at 29 miles.
The reward for this is a visit to a new lunch venue - The Travellers Rest in Neilston.
John will take us there via the A77 cycle path and Walton Dam.
Return to Fenwick via Uplawmoor.
It will be at an easy pace with plenty of time to enjoy the views.
Wed 29th Jul 10:30
If you have ever been on a midweek ride with Ronnie to Stair then it is business as usual as Ronnie repeats his route from the previous visits.
An oldie, but a classic !
31 miles taking in Monkton, Tarbolton, Mauchline, Stair and St. Quivox.
