News from Ayr Roads Cycling Club
7 Riders took part in a social ride on Friday 17th August, leaving Ayr at 9am to ride out to a lunch stop at the highest pub in Scotland in Wanlockhead. Favourable conditions gave the group a boost up the 6 mile climb (included in Simon Warren's book of 100 Greatest UK climbs) from Sanquar. Following lunch the return journey took the group home via Crawfordjohn and some challenging headwind including 40mph gusts. By this time the weather had well and truly turned resulting in a rather sodden last 30 miles home. A terrific effort all round.
Attendance has been very good this year aided by the purchase of turbo trainers for members. Sessions will resume in January 2020.
