Ayr Roads Cycling Club
Congratulations! You are signing up to join Ayrshire's favourite, best, and most brilliant cycling club - Ayr Roads CC
Ayr Roads Cycling Club was founded in 1930, is the leading cycling club in South Ayrshire and one of the most active clubs in the West of Scotland. The club is affiliated with Scottish Cycling and the Ayrshire and Dumfriesshire Cycling Association.
Our membership includes regional, national and international medal winners in all disciplines of cycle sport. It also includes many amatuer hacks who enjoy the social runs and community offered by the club.
The club is active in road racing, time trials and track. Members also compete in offroad events.
In 2016 Ayr Roads will promote three 'open' events - the Pennyglen Time Trial, a Road Race based in Straiton and the National 25 Mile Time Trial. All club members are encouraged to help the organisers with these events.
We also have a successful club league including cyclocross, hill climbs, timetrials, group rides and the fearsome freewheel, which will run between February and November 2016.
We welcome your contribution to the club, and your hard earned pennies. (£20 for senior - £5 for under 18s and students) As a club member please take the time to familiarise yourself with our constitution. It's not the most exciting document ever, but it may come in handy! Please visit our web-site for details.
Please note that before you sign up for the first time, we strongly recommend that you come along and meet us. The best time and place for doing this would be either at 09:30 Sunday morning for the Sunday run (Beresford Terrace outside Cafe 51), or 19:00 Tuesday evenings at Belmont Academy (October to April), where we hold a weekly gym session. Failing that please use the 'Contact Us' button on our web-site - here.
Insurance cover for cyclists is becoming more and more important these days. We encourage members to take out insurance by joining Scottish Cycling (via British Cycling) and/or the CTC. Both these organisations provide excellent insurance cover as well as other benefits - for example, a race licence through BC will provide discounted entries and eligibility for Scottish Championship events.
