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.
