We are delighted to announce our sponsors for 2021. Firstly a huge thanks to the continued support from Harry Fairbairn BMW. We believe this sponsorship to be one of the longest running sponsorship for a sports club in Scotland and look forward to enhancing this relationship further through events and promotion. Also continuing support for a further year is the Giant on the Giant twitter account. Well worth a follow if you are on Twitter. The Club are also delighted to have on board three further sponsorship deals with ACS cycle shop in Prestwick, Matrix Transport and John Gemmell Coachworks. The club is hugely appreciative of the commitment made by all our sponsors and remember, members get a discount in ACS Cycles so definitely worth a visit for all your biking needs.
