Despite the less than favorable weather conditions ‘The Burners’ enjoyed a jam packed weekend of various cycling activities.

On Saturday the scheduled ladies ride went ahead as planned with six members enjoying a brisk pedal around the coastlines of Troon and Irvine before heading inland to the welcoming shelter of the Langholm Farm tea room. A total distance of 40 blustery kilometers was more than plenty for the windswept girls of the Ayr Burners. Check ayrburners.org for details of more scheduled ladies rides.

St Meddans Church Hall in Troon provided the venue for ‘The Burners’ first Cycle Jumble sale, where local cycling enthusiasts could meet to sell, swap or buy any surplus or unwanted bike related items.

The event proved a great success, with the hall being a busy hive of activity for the full afternoon. Over 60 shoppers visited the sale over the course of the day, with the vendors and buyers all remarking on how enjoyable the event proved to be.

The next scheduled Ayr Burners ride takes place on Good Friday, with a 35 Kilometer loop starting from Sanquhar. The route takes in the stunning Mennock Pass and the famous Green Lowther Hill, returning to Sanquhar via the Southern Upland Way. Full details can be found at ayrburners.org
