Millport Cycle

July 22, 2023

Join us on Saturday 22nd July for a day out at Millport!

We will be cycling “The Outer Circuit” which is a 10 mile and as the name says – the whole way round the island. This will be a pleasant journey with wonderful coastal views on the way.  Plenty of opportunities to stop and take photos!

The cycle route will take roughly 1 – 2 hours

Itinerary 

We will leave Largs at 11am taking us to Cumbrae at 11.10.

For those who didn’t bring a bike they could get the bus into Millport – another 10 mins. By the time folk have picked up their bike hire those cycling from the ferry should have arrived in Millport. Do you need to hire a bike? Let us know! We can help book them in advance ahead of the day.

Please bring with you a packed lunch (to eat half-way around 1pm) and we’ll also stop for coffee/chips/ice cream before we leave.
