Ayr Burners members meet every Saturday morning at 0930 by the Burns Centre, Murdoch’s Loan, Alloway for a weekly road ride. Duration is typically 2-3hrs, at a social conversational pace. This route changes depending on weather and wind conditions, and typically finishes with a visit to the cafe on our return. Do feel free to join us for a couple rides as a guest!
Individual members frequently post ride suggestions and activities on our Facebook Group – these are publicly viewable and company is welcome! Please check details for ride type and duration
We run an annual league of 12 events – covering a variety of disciplines and biased towards participation rather than speed or strength. Many activities are handicapped to ensure a more ‘competitive’ experience for everyone. Details of each round of the league are published on our Facebook Group Forum.
Between March and September we promote a series of activities aimed at younger children including our ‘Sparks’ (2-5yr olds on balance bikes), ‘Flames’ (4-8 yr olds on pedal bikes) and Family rides on easy, traffic-lite terrain.
Our annual Cyclocross race, the Doonbank Trofee, takes place on the final Sunday of January at Rozelle Park. The last edition took place on 28th January 2018
Our annual Ayrshire Alps Sportive takes place on the final Sunday of August, starting and finishing in Kirkmichael with 60km and 100km rides to choose from.
In 2018 we are partnering Cycle Ayrshire to deliver their ‘Ayrshire Cycle Festival’ from Troon in May. This will include our annual Ayrshire Cycle Jumble, sessions for Sparks and Flames, a Family Treasure Hunt and a come-and-try cyclocross event.
