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

With the emphasis on sociable leisure 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 3 rides after which, due to insurance requirements, we would expect you to join the CTC if you wished to continue riding with us.

This should be enough to allow you to sample the range of rides to find the one that suits your cycling aspirations - and ability.

Read about our various ride categories.

The next 30 days

(6 Events)

Starting at Ayr - Ayr College at Dam Park
Clive repeats his route of last year, circling in and around Ayr, exploring hidden places and little known paths - some off road.
20-25 miles depending on weather and condition of paths.
Hopefully this year the weather will be less inclement and wet suits will not be required!
Not suited to skinny road tyres due to the nature of some of the paths.
Starting at Alloway - Burns Birthplace Musuem
Quiet rural roads with some hills to climb but worth the effort for some spectacular views, claims leader Jackie.
Lunch stop at the Cosy Corner Tea Room in Roodlea.
Starting at Irvine - Lawthorn Farm Pub car park
Yet another figure-of-eight route, this time with Dalry at the centre.
40 miles long for those who want to do the full distance, starting from Lawthorn Farm Pub in Irvine.
If you fancy a shorter 21 mile outing, join the ride outside Dalry Primary School at approx. 11:00 to do the northern half of the eight.
The route then heads for lunch in Largs via Fairlie Moor (from the easier side) and returns to Dalry via the Haylie Brae before continuing on to Irvine for those doing the full distance.
Lunch venue decided on the day as Largs has several to choose from.
Starting at Langholm Cafe - Corraith
Most of our club rides take place on a Sunday.
If Saturday suits you better, why not try our DIY MEET.
We nominate a cafe/restaurant/whatever, and you start from wherever you like, cycle to the designated venue, arrive at the designated time, hopefully meet up with other similarly minded CTC members, have a coffee and a natter then head home - perhaps with company for some of the way.
Nominated cafe for this meet is the Langholm Farm Shop and Cafe on the Corraith Road.
As usual, get there around 12:30 ish.
Starting at Kilmarnock - Kay Park lower car park at Strawberrybank Road
Another in our series of History Rides.
Drew and Pat lead around various points of historical interest on the way to Galston via Loudon Kirk.
Return via the Sir Chris Hoy Way.
Coffee stop at Dean Park.
Starting at Mauchline - Loudoun Street car park
25 miles.
Walter takes us through the picturesque villages of Ochiltree and Sorn.
On a clear day you may even see the Paps of Jura.
Lunch at The Coach House in Auchinleck Estate so you can bag some history with your food.
