ABC Summer Series

Our 2015 Summer Series features 8 mid-week mini-competitions over a variety of cycling disciplines, each in a location chosen for quiet roads and accessibility.  As evening events these are short and should be as much about banter and fun as they are about testing skills and going quick.

As well as traditional road and cross events, the series also includes orienteering and a ‘Skills Olympics’ where technique and strategy count for at least as much as strength and ignorance!

A Strava Ride is a regular social ride with a difference.  Certain ‘sectors’ a pre-agreed as being game-on for racing.  Outside of those sectors the group must ride together.  Any rider who drops or leaves the group outside a sector is disqualified for being antisocial.  Therefore, regardless of your strength, speed, or aspiration to race, you can enjoy a great night out without feeling you are slowing someone else down!

The Ayr Burners Summer Series is open to all members and prospective members of Ayr Burners Cycling.  However, only paid members will qualify for points.  Full information will be available for each activity in our events calendar.
