It’s July, it’s glorious weather – can it really last until our summer rides start on Saturday? We hope so!
This year we’re giving something back to the town – we’re bringing along a couple of litter bags so we can stop and do a #2MinuteCleanUp on each of our rides. We’ve all seen what happens when plastic and other non biodegradable waste gets into the sea – and it looks terrible too. So we’ll be doing our bit to not just take our own rubbish home, but to pick up a bit of other people’s as well.
On Saturday we kick off with our traditional easy opening ride up and down the river on the Kingholm Loop. This ride is a really gentle introduction to cycling in Dumfries so whether you’re an old hand or a total beginner, please do come along and join us. There will be the traditional home baking too! If you want to come along, there’s no need to book, just turn up with your bike for a 2pm start at Dock Park Car Park, a bit earlier if you’d like it checked over beforehand.
On Monday 9th July we’ll also have our monthly meeting at the Riverside Bar (at 6pm). So far the weather has been fine for all of these – we’re daring to hope it might continue. After last summer, we think we deserve it!
Update: unfortunately the meeting has had to be postponed. Watch this space.
