About us

South Ayrshire Paths Initiative is a community group of volunteers dedicated to promoting the development, maintenance and awareness of safe paths for all in South Ayrshire including walkers, cyclists and limited-mobility users. Our line of reasoning is simple – build, maintain and promote safe and attractive paths and people will use them.

We want to work with local planning and infrastructure authorities (e.g. South Ayrshire Council and Ayrshire Roads Alliance), Active Travel organisations (e.g. Sustrans, Living Streets, Paths for All) and other organisations that can help turn our vision into reality.

We aim to achieve this by identifying potential paths for development, encouraging safe path and junction design, helping to create welcoming greener pathways, highlighting barriers and maintenance issues, promoting awareness and benefits of active travel

There's light at the end of the tunnel.
Today @southayrshire agreed to go-ahead with construction of the underpass at Dunure Road, Doonfoot to create a safe link between the cycle paths, subject to successful external funding applications.

Thanks to everyone involved 🚲 🚶‍♀️ https://t.co/IcH6X2hz3d

It's been a long time getting here, but it's thrilling to see the critical Ledaig to Benderloch section of the #NCN78 #CaledoniaWay under way. By summer, the 40 miles from Connel to Fort William will be traffic free. @SustransScot @JacobsConnects @McGowanLtdUK https://t.co/4cwldpYZGt

Tomorrow Tuesday 27th Nov
@southayrshire Leadership Panel meeting for construction of the Dunure Rd underpass at Doonfoot to link the cycle paths and replace the unsafe road crossings. Let your councillor know what you think https://t.co/dX9fk4MZS2…/dunure-road-underpass https://t.co/YbkSDicyUA

A great bike ride on a selfish day off. Finally ventured up the gravel track from North Balloch and hit the turbine roads on Glengennet after a 300m hike. Be great to see this connected! @AyrBurners @SouthAyrshirePI https://t.co/XjwwoqTR79
