The final leg of a four day trip from Carlisle to Glasgow the 'long way round'. Over 200 miles, taking in the delights of Dumfries & Galloway and Ayrshire. Much of the route will be on quiet minor roads or designated cycle paths, following part of the National Cycle Network Route 7.

Day 4 will include a significant amount of traffic-free cycle route as we follow former railway tracks through Lochwinnoch and Johnstone now converted to a well surfaced cycle path linking Ayrshire with Paisley. From there, our route continues along the White Cart Water and through Pollok Country Park to reach our ultimate destination in Glasgow city centre.

For maximum flexibility each day is planned as a separate event. If you are joining us for more than one of the days, you should make your own accommodation arrangements. With a frequent rail service between Glasgow and Ayr, Day 4 could easily be done as a standalone day trip if wished.

A map of the proposed route for day 4 can be found here.
