Regular Club Meet-ups
Ayr Roads CC has a weekly Sunday Run leaving Beresford Terrace, Ayr, at 0930am, all year round.
The run is approximately 3 to 5 hours in duration and can cover anything from 50 to 100 miles and features a cafe stop. The club run is a social affair and the pace rarely exceeds 15mph average, but often includes a wee ‘habble’ at some point en route.
The Sunday run is the best place to meet up with the club and test your legs. If you are nervous about your fitness, fear not. Plan on joining us for the first hour and gradually build up distance as you go.
Please note, helmets are mandatory and riders should carry a trailside repair kit, their ICE number and clothing appropriate for the weather.
April to August
During the summer months, some members meet between 1830 and 1700 for a training session using a tested circuit. The ride is split into groups based on ability and, depending on the weather, takes between 1hr 15 and 1hr 30.
This ride is a fast training ride and prospective members are encouraged to attend a Sunday club run before joining a training session. Please note, helmets are mandatory and riders should fit a rear red light during May to August.
The club run a league from April to October featuring a mixture of events across different disciplines.
Club 10 Series
During the Summer months there is a weekly 10 mile Time Trial for club members. The 2018 series is scheduled to begin on Thursday 5th April at 6.30, first rider off sharp at 7. Meeting point is the turn off for Corraith hill on the way into Loans. All are welcome to come along and give it a go. Set your own benchmark and attempt to beat it. A TT bike is not compulsory, however helmets and rear lights are a must.
Riders are recommended to have adequate third party insurance for riding their bikes. This can be readily obtained from membership organisations including the CTC and British Cycling (Silver at least).
