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
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.
Sun 31st Aug
Starting at Galston - Co-op car park
It's a more challenging easy ride this month as John is heading over the Darvel Mast road to picturesque Sorn.
There's a tearoom in the village or, bring a picnic.
The way back is easier! Sat 6th Sep
Starting at Kilwinning - Railway Station
Once again we have an Ayrshire Doors Open Day tour.
The tour will start with Kilwinning Abbey Tower and the Kirk's first 21st-century church building.
Might be a few more miles than usual but you will have more breaks than usual to explore places not often open to the public as well as a relaxing stop for a snack lunch. Sun 7th Sep
Starting at Ayr - Ayr Auld Brig
Drew and Pat will lead another Doors Open Day meander - from one welcome to the next - with opportunity for extra tea stops.
Lunch somewhere en route by general concensus on the day. Wed 10th Sep
Starting at Stewarton - Railway Station
Peter simply describes this route as heading for "points north".
Sun 14th Sep
Starting at Largs - Ferry Terminal
In almost a reverse of last year’s ride, the group will initially head out of Largs towards Lochwinnoch via the Hailey Brae.
Thereafter, we head to Greenock before returning to Largs via the Old Largs Road.
This is a pretty hilly route so bring enough food and drink.
Lunch stop will be decided on the day but best to bring a packed lunch.
Total distance will be around 45 miles with approximately 2500ft of climbing.
Sun 21st Sep
Starting at Sanquhar - Behind Tolbooth Museum
Another hilly special for those with climbing legs.
Walter takes us around an explorative route of 55 miles, passing Drumlanrig Castle, the hidden Morton Castle and other seldom visited places.
Over 3500ft. of acsent during the route.
Lunch at the Ae Bike Shop Cafe but bring some food in case hunger bites before the lunch stop... Wed 24th Sep

Phillip rounds out the Midweek season by heading south to Lendalfoot for a picnic lunch. Sun 28th Sep

It's over the hill on the nicely surfaced B734, leading you past tranquil Hadyard Hill wind turbines to the enchanting village of Barr.
Out and back it's 26 miles.
