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.

Start/Meet 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.
