After only 6 months in existence Ayr Burners reached a huge milestone this week as they welcomed on-board their 100th member. With a varied and exciting calendar of family friendly events and challenges it comes as no surprise that ‘The Burners’ have had such a successful 2015.

From their ever popular balance-bike fun mornings for the wee-ones, to their epic day rides along the Southern Upland Way, all members regardless of age or ability are happily catered for.

Despite the damp conditions the Troon Treasure Hunt turned out to be a winning format, with the riders being given 1 hour to identify as many clues as possible within a 12 mile radius. With bonus points awarded for some more adventurous locations, as well as time penalties for any late returns, it was all to play for with overall standings in the Summer Series at stake. Chris Johnson showed the navigation skills to claim 42 points, with Scott Knox’s 36 points manoeuvring him into top-spot in the series.

July 4th sees The Burners embark on the 65 Kilometer River Ayr Way, Scotland first ‘source to sea’ path. Starting in Glenbuck and finishing at Ayr Harbour, this relatively flat route is rich in both scenery and wildlife. For full details of this and other scheduled rides visit ayrburners.org
