Ronde van Ayrlaanderen 2023
Ronde Van Ayrlaanderen (RVA) 2023 is fast approaching. This year it will be held on Saturday 8th April at 09:30, leaving from the Burns Museum. The usual standard Saturday ride will follow this year’s RVA route, a slight change from historic routes.
For those who haven’t been on an RVA ride before most of the route is cycled at a normal Burners pace, but there are identified segments which are timed (via Strava) – it’s your choice if you want to put in an effort, the bunch will re-group after.
In keeping with the RVV (and other classics) whilst we won’t have cobbles you can expect some of Ayrshire’s finest tarmac.
All are welcome to take part – however only current members will stand a chance of winning one of the RVA cobbles.
