New Year’s Day Mast Ride

It’ll come as no surprise that this (next ?) year’s Ne’er Day Mast Ride will be a bit different from previous year’s rides.

Life in Lockdown

As we gradually see lockdown restrictions ease, we thought it would be good to share some pictures of what Burners have been doing since group activities were curtailed. Here’s a small but varied selection showing what we’ve been up to / where we’ve been since that day in March. Thanks to all who contributed photos…

Group Rides Update

The last post on the Burners web-site, which seems like a very long time ago, was to announce that all group rides had been postponed until further notice due to the impact of Covid-19. There have been many changes since then, but the good news is that Scottish Cycling have published updated guidelines on their…
