Great season ahead for Burners

The incredible start to 2015 for the new Ayr Burners Cycling group has seen over 60 people joining, including over twenty females and fourteen members who under the age of 16.

“The Burners” first members meeting takes place on Tuesday 3rd February 7.15pm at the Savoy Park Hotel in Ayr. This will be a chance for members to meet and discuss the great season of riding ahead.

A CycloCross skills session was enjoyed by members of all ages and abilities on Saturday in the idyllic setting of Rozelle park. A series of obstacles within a twisting course enabled the riders to test and improve their bike handling craft with a variety of different games and drills - all under the guidance of our ride leaders.

Following the success of Saturdays get-together, the group plan to hold another skills session in March (date TBC).

Ayr Burners Cycling’s next group ride is on Saturday 7th of February, departing Monkton Cross at 0930 hours. A 45km social ride around quiet and rolling country roads is planned, on a route that will feature a series short climbs along the way that will give riders a challenge, with the rest of the outing being a social affair. This trip is suitable for any rider who is comfortable at riding for more than 2 hours. Check ayrburners.org for more details.
