New Year’s Resolution ride

Wednesday 1st January 11 am.  Whether you’re starting the year as you mean to go on, riding off a hangover, or just want to blow away the cobwebs after the Christmas period, why don’t you join us for our New Year’s Day ride and get your year off to best possible start

This will be a gentle run to Caerlaverock for a reviving hot soup, and then home again. We meet at Devorgilla Bridge on the Whitesands

As with the run up to Ae, this ride is aimed at all comers – it’s relatively flat, and while the Bankend and Glencaple roads aren’t as quiet as the roads to Ae, they should be fairly empty given the date. As always, while some people may wish to head off the front in a faster group, there will be some back markers who are always delighted to cycle ‘at the speed of chat’.

This will be a fairly easy ride; the route will depend on how people feel on the day and the prevailing wind, but it won’t be longer than 20 miles. We will ride whatever the weather unless the conditions are too icy to be safe – which will be at the discretion of the ride leader. Please do dress for the conditions and make sure you’ve got enough layers to stay warm.
