A simple loop around the small island of Millport. It is very easy. The second loop through the centre is quite hilly,suitable for both mountain and road bikes. Great for a family day out. Bike hire is usually available on the island.

Plenty of places to eat in Millport.

I work for one of the 3 cycle hire centres in Millport called ON YOUR BIKE situated next door to the Ritz cafe opposite Millport Pier. The circular route around Cumbrae is actually 10.25 or 10.5 miles around (depending on which way around you go). It is a beautiful ride with views over to Arran and Bute and a flat road all around, over half of which is not on the bus route and very infrequented by cars. There are two cafes on the route for refueling! The inner circle is less fequented by cyclists due to the steep incline to reach it in the first place but well worth the effort as on a clear day the views are spectacular. ON YOUR BIKE is the only hire centre to offer Electric Bikes which make the inner circle an achievable option to less fit people (like myself!) We also have (one of only 2 in Scotland) a 7 seater conference bike available for something a little different! for more details www.onyourbikemillport.com

Cycled around the island today using the outer circle on the above map. It's only 10.05 miles from the ferry terminal and we did it anti-clockwise. The roads had a lot of debris on them from the recent January gales but was passable although wouldn't have liked to have used the thin tyres on a road bike. Stopped at the Harbour Tea Room for soup of the day & a roll. It was very welcome on such a cold day.

I live locally and have thus done this loop many times, on my mtb, often do 2 laps. Great views on a clear day. Always see people in all the gear and wondered how many laps they do at a time? Not been brave enough to go for a 3rd yet!

Today i cycled round on my e bike rented from mapes of millport and it was so easy not even 40 mins to get round the under 10 miles. Its said to be over 10 but do a route plan and it works out as about 9.4 ish. The e bikes were amazing and Mapes of Millport is the number 1 stop for bikes on Millport. They have over 400 bikes availabe and have the biggest selection including ebikes, quadricycles, trikes, tandems, scooters, tag alongs, kiddie cabs, dog carriers, and onto the bikes, they have hybrids, MTB, BMX all at massively competative prices. Helmets available as are full services by fully quified bike mechanics. Totally recommend this location for a day away.
