(and a July one – a reminder that our next summer ride is on Saturday 29th July – to the 12 Apostles, hopefully in better weather than last Saturday!)
We’re half way through our summer rides and August is looming, so this is just a quick reminder of some dates coming up in August.
First, it’s our regular monthly meeting on Tuesday 1st August, 6pm as usual at the Coach and Horses. Please come along for a very informal gathering – a chance to chat bikes, help plan our events, and raise any burning cycling (or walking) issues you may have.
On Thursday 3rd August, as part of the Nithsdale summer holiday activities, there’s a family bike fun day in Dock Park – details here (along with loads of other events).
And finally, as well as our regular Saturday Summer Ride, on Sunday 6th August we’re running a much longer ride – our ‘cake raid’ to Durisdeer. This will be around 45 miles, but with a stop at the church in Durisdeer for their regular afternoon tea, which comes highly recommended. If you’re worried that it might be too long, the D&G CTC group will also be riding there, but from Thornhill via Drumlanrig (details on their ride list). It should be a bit of fun and a chance to try a longer distance, but all at a gentle pace. And just think how much cake you’ll have earned by the time you cycle there and back!
