GoBike Ride to the North Ayrshire Coast – Sunday 1st July

Join us once again for our monthly bike ride this month to the sunny North Ayrshire Coast.

We will ride out through Paisley and along the NCN 7 path for lunch in Kilwinning. After lunch we will follow the North Ayrshire coast around Saltcoats, Ardrossan to Portencross, including using an award-winning level crossing. There will be options to return by train from Kilwinning, West Kilbride or Largs, and some adventurous riders may even continue over the hill back towards Glasgow. 50 miles to Largs, with options for returning by train from various stations before then.

Meet 10am at the pagoda at the North end of the Bell’s Bridge.

Rides are generally around 30-40 miles in length, although winter rides are shorter. Often there is the option to return by train for a shorter ride. A lunch break is usually taken in a suitable pub or café en route, although you are welcome to bring your own picnic if you wish. Rides are usually on tarmac surfaces (road or path) and suitable for most types of bikes, e.g. tourer, racer, hybrid, mountain bike, but will occasionally feature sections of route on rougher paths or tracks – see ride descriptions for details.

Difficulty 4/5

Ride on paths (cycle paths, paths in parks, etc) / Ride on quiet roads (residential streets, country lanes)

Moderate hill climbing.

Option for train home from finish.

Please note that rides are subject to alteration/cancellation due to the weather.
