The Tam o'Shanter Ride
Sunday 4th. May at 9.30am

The CTC Ayrshire Club is the county's largest cycling club group with a well established, all-year programme of rides varying from 15 to 75 miles.

With the emphasis on leisurely social cycling we are always glad to welcome new faces on our rides - and you don't have to sign-up immediately.

You can participate in up to 5 rides after which we would expect you to join the CTC if you wished to continue riding with us.

To browse the full range of events we have to offer, use the Events links at the top of the page.

Events during the next 30 days are shown below.
