Cake Raid: Join us on an epic ride for cake …

Cakes for illustration only. Other cakes may be available…

Our summer rides are going from strength to strength – but we have had a few requests for a couple of longer rides over the summer and the Durisdeer Church afternoon teas seemed like the perfect opportunity to stretch our wings a little.

On Sunday 6th August we will be joining forces with the D&G CTC members group to find out if these teas really live up to their legendary reputation.

This is going to be one of our longest rides – the route hasn’t been completely determined yet, but it will clock in at a minimum of 45 miles (22.5 miles each way), with a fair few feet of climbing. However, we will be taking it at an easy pace AND there will, importantly, be a cracking cake stop in the middle. Meet at Devorgilla Bridge at 11:45 am, hoping to get there shortly after they start serving at 2pm (this implies a 10 mph average pace).

If that sounds too much, there is also a shorter alternative, starting at Thornhill, going via Drumlanrig and Morton Castle with the CTC  Discovery rides. Meet at Thornhill Cross at 1:15 for a 1:30 start.

There was also wild talk at last week’s meeting of a mountain bikers’ raiding party forming too – watch this space.

Any other cycling groups fancy joining us on an epic ride for cake?
