After a delayed start due to a flat tyre (well it wouldn’t be a summer ride without one!) we were off and battling the strong wind round the Maxwelltown Cyclepath. As we headed out of Cargenbridge there was bit of dodging to be done on the shared use path alongside the Dalbeattie Road – a route obviously popular with horse riders too!
We then made our way along the Mabie Farm Park road before heading past the giant pink marshmallow hay bales to Mabie Farm Park. From here we cycled up a little known track to bring us out at the sawmill in Mabie Forest.
The proof is in the pudding! Here we enjoyed the final cake offering of the last summer ride before heading back the way we’d come and this time with the wind behind us – weeeeee!
It’s not over yet. The night’s may be shortening and the brambles ready for picking but there’s no need to put the bike in the shed. Our annual Bike Breakfast is coming up in September and Beat the Street starts next week, which sees Dumfries turned in to a town size game. We’re hoping to form a team so please let us know if you’d like to be part of it! Either email us email@example.com or message us on facebook.
