Ayr Burners Cycling QTS took to the tarmac, trails, and boards over the weekend with members partaking in a big mix of cycling activities.

On Saturday morning the Burns Centre bunch enjoyed their steady 30 miler around the quiet lanes of South Ayrshire, whilst the young Sparks and Flames headed for the Kyle pump track for some fun on the purpose built skills loop.

On Saturday evening three Burners set off from Carlisle in a quest to catch the sunrise over Crammond beach on the East coast.

The Ride to the Sun event is a 100 mile route that is held around the Summer Solstice, with over 800 rides taking part this year.

Catching the sunrise on Crammond beach wasn’t the only highlight of the ride, as the chippy in Moffat stayed ‘open all hours’ to feed the hundreds of participants at the halfway point of the evening.

At the Emirates Arena in Glasgow three members completed their level 4 track acreditation after a two hour coached session.

This brings the total number of fully track trained Burners to ten, with a members only club session at the impressive Velodrome booked in for August.

This week the Burners have a Mountain Bike skills session, and the Summer Series rolls on with the Troon Treasure Hunt
