The next 30 days
Sun 29th Mar 10:00
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.
Sat 4th Apr 11:00
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.
Sun 12th Apr 10:00
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.
Sat 18th Apr 12:30
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.
Sun 19th Apr 9:30
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.
