We are Cycle Ayrshire, part of Cycling UK, and are 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 Cycling UK if you wished to continue riding with us.

Saddlebag is the club newsletter for Cycle Ayrshire.
It is published 2-4 times per year.

Ride Reports

Sorry, but there are no Ride Reports within the last 60 days


Ride Reports are added less frequently in winter months simply due to there being fewer rides taking place.


Please check again in a few days.

After 30 years of cycling in Ayrshire, it is a surprise to our run coordinators that fresh ideas continue to emerge with what is essentially a fixed amount of road.

Certainly, we have annual standard rides which have proved their worth and the inclusion of out-of-county starts widens the potential for "fresh roads and lunch-stops new" to paraphrase with our needs.

But we are an Ayrshire group and that´s where most of our cycling is done.
So the question is, how have we kept a freshness in our rides programme?

We believe that the freshness comes from just two main sources - and these are local knowledge and a connection with the countryside which only cycling and walking can bring.

That´s where you come in.
We´re always looking for members to bring their own favourite routes and even lead them on our ride programme.

If you are interested in being a ride leader or offering up what you consider to be an interesting route, use any of the contact addresses in the Contact form to express your interest.

Even if you don´t have a route of your own, check out our Route Catalogue.
It contains routes we have done in the past therefore, any of them are suitable as a club ride.

Please note: You must be a current Cycling UK member to be a ride leader.

Cycling quote of the day:

It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.
