EVEREST scaled for the 2nd time
Ayr Burners Cycling QTS faced up to a challenge of mountainous proportions last Sunday as the group attempted to ‘Everest’ in the Galloway Hills.
The chosen climb for the riders to scale was the 248 metre high ‘Nic of the Balloch’ with 36 ascents required to gain the 9000 metres of Mount Everest. Drizzly and damp conditions didn’t deter the Burners who turned out for the test, and after three hours of slog and grind the weary riders competed a fantastic 40 ascents of the famous ‘Ayrshire Alp.’
This Sunday ‘The Burners’ are heading to the cycling paradise of Arran for a days riding around the scenic Island.
