The Arran Bike Club was originally formed in 2002 by a group of enthusiastic mountain bikers on the island. Since then road cycling has also become more popular with island residents and as a consequence Arran now sees regular weekly riding from mountain bikers, road riders and a ladies specific group called the 'Isle of Arran Belles on Bikes'.
Anyone and everyone is welcome to join any of these weekly rides, to find live and up to date information visit the Arran Bike Club Facebook page or contact us here.
No one gets left behind, we're much more a social club than a racing cub, though we are known to partake in the odd event now and again! We enjoy nothing more than guiding visitors around our wonderful island.
The Arran Bike Club has been and still is instrumental in campaigning for cycling resources on the island, working very closely with our local North Ayrshire Council access officer, local island groups and landowners to secure more off road trails and safer road side routes for locals and visitors alike. A good example is the Brodick to Corrie multi user trail which is finally coming to fruition after a decade of campaigning, planning, negotions, etc. This safe road side route is now being built and will hopefully see completion by 2016 making this beautiful road a lot safer to travel for all.
We also spend time building and maintaining single-track and trails, working with our local Forestry commission guys on the island to help and improve our local riding environment. All helpers and volunteers are welcome on these days, just keep an eye on Facebook for more info.
