Come enjoy the ever changing countryside of the Ardrossan area. We tend to stay on quiet roads but occasionally our journey takes us onto some high traffic roadways. We try to use roads with good tarmac suitable for road bikes but mountain/hybrid/touring/ebikes are all welcome. There are short, small hills on most of the routes (primarily 2-3% grade). Maps are provided and the routes will be posted on Ride With GPS the morning of the ride. There will always be a ‘sweep’ for the short route.
When: Arrive at 6:00 pm for a 6:15 sharp departure
Where: Ardrossan Rec Centre (parking lot on southside of the building)
Skill Level*: Levels 2-3 on a scale of 5 (April**/May/June); Levels 3-4 on a scale of 5 (July/August/September***)

*Cyclists can choose between two routes every week: one short/one long. Both the short and the long routes will increase in distance over the season as cyclists build endurance.
