The National Cycle Network passes through Maybole, across the Carrick Hills to the coastline at Doonfoot. It passes along the beach front at Ayr and Prestwick, along the golf courses of Troon to the harbour of Irvine. It then travels to Kilwinning and inland to Kilbirnie on its way to Glasgow.
A link route 73 provides access from Kilmarnock and the ferry port of Ardrossan. The local routes of South Ayrshire include Robert Burns country, visiting Alloway, Burns Cottage, the Auld Brig O'Doon and out into the countryside where Burns farmed. You can see migrating birds resting near Dalrymple where you can also marvel at the majestic railway viaduct. Travel through stunning countryside to Maybole or down to Straiton and beyond. Local routes link across from Maybole to the coast where you can visit Girvan, the cliffs at Lendalfoot or take a diversion to Turnberry or Culzean Castle.
Some of the routes pass along roads and you should take care and ensure you have the suitable safety equipment for the journey. Read our Helpful Hints for Cyclists for more safety information.
Get on your bike, and have fun exploring Ayrshire.
