Summer’s Coming

No, really!

Oh, OK it’s still November and dark and cold and as I write this the rain is battering against the window. But summer will be coming eventually and we’re already starting to think about what to do when it does arrive.

A couple of summers ago, the local CTC group offered a very popular series of Saturday rides aimed at families and beginner cyclists, starting at Dock Park and using the network of reasonably safe routes available around the town. Unfortunately, despite getting 30 or more people coming, the group simply did not have the numbers of volunteers needed to lead (and follow) these rides. Mike Gray, who is a member of both CTC and Cycling Dumfries (as are a number of our other members) has suggested that we join forces to resurrect these rides next summer.

We haven’t quite worked out the details yet but the first thing we need is an idea of numbers – how many of you would be interested in helping out with this, and how many of you are already CTC members (which helps with the insurance). And for any novice cyclists out there, an idea of whether you’d be interested in taking part. The idea is to do week rides, on Saturday afternoons, from mid June to mid August.
