Isle of Arran


Graeme Strawhorn

Get on your bike for the Ayrshire Hospice and join our annual Arran Cycle on Saturday 16th June 2018. The Isle of Arran offers a challenging cycle for all abilities and we have two routes to choose from depending on your personal cycling ability and choice; 56 miles or 35 miles. There will also be regular rest stops along the way for you to refresh and refuel before finishing with a celebratory BBQ and drinks at the Douglas Hotel in Brodick.

The £30 registration fee covers all expenses involved in administering your place and it is not refundable. Registration fee includes ferry fares, support cycle team and vehicles, snack stop refreshments and lunch at the halfway point. Please note that your £30 registration fee is not a donation to the Ayrshire Hospice and we will issue each participant with a sponsorship form of which we anticipate they will raise sponsorship for us. There is no minimum sponsorship but we hope that each participant will try to raise as much as they can.

The Douglas Hotel have kindly agreed to offer their premises as our base for the start/finish of the cycle. We will also have the use of changing and showering facilities if you wish. There will be a celebratory BBQ afterwards from 2pm where a burger and a beer (or alternative soft drink) will be available to all participants. To book the BBQ with your cycle cost will be £40. Any friends or family for who wish to join you for the BBQ can do for a cost of £12.50.
