On Friday 21st September we will be holding our annual Big Bike Breakfast – part of the World Car Free Day weekend celebrations.
After several years of holding it outside the council offices, we’re planning on taking the event to the commuters and holding it on the Whitesands, probably Dumfries’s busiest cycle commuting route. We’re joining forces with the Coach and Horses pub (which will be opening for the morning) and the nearby Ice Cream and Coffee House to provide a free hot roll (egg or bacon) and tea, coffee and other breakfast goodies.
The bike breakfast will be held between 7am and 9am and also offers a chance to chat, find out more about what we do, and perhaps even nobble a councillor or council official and let them know what you think would make cycling easier and safer. We’ll be feeding back any gaps in the cycling network that people tell us about, which should feed into the council’s wider active travel strategy.
All you have to do to earn your free breakfast is to show up on your bike (mounted on the top of your car doesn’t count – although we’re not going to question how far you’ve actually ridden it…)
