Why Cycle Events are Like Buses…

Well, this is just typical. You can wait weeks for a cycling event to come along in Dumfries and then two of them come along at once! Still, it means there’s a ride for everyone going on tomorrow, so there’s no excuse not to get your bike out and join at least one of them… in fact, if you’re nippy enough, you might be able to make it to both.

In no particular order, there is the combined CTC and Go Bike! cycle ride which starts at 1pm near Cargenbridge and will be a leisurely family-friendly ride along the Maxwelltown Cycle path. It will last 1-2 hours and will end back at Cargenbridge which should allow you enough time to double back and join …

… the Pink Mile fun day and cycle event in support of the Dumfries and Galloway LGBT centre. Their intrepid cyclists have just completed a mammoth 300 mile ride from Inverness, but they’re only expecting you to join them for their final mile. Gather for a picnic from 1pm at the King George V sports centre, and set off around 2pm, with other fun and games to follow.

We’re always happy to promote any bike-related event in the area so if you’re planning a ride, meeting, sponsored trip or anything like that, just let us know on the Events page and we’ll add it to the site.
