Ayrshire Alps

The Ayrshire Alps Cycle Park is situated at the north end of the Galloway Forest Park and consists of 16 graded on road cycle climbs. The park concept was created by Christopher Johnson and is developed and promoted by Ayr Burners Cycling, a local group. The terrain offers fantastic scenery, quiet cycle friendly roads and a tough cycling challenge.
