Summer 2016
 – our family fun rides will once more be running every Saturday afternoon through July and August. These will be safe escorted rides using traffic-free paths and quiet roads wherever possible, lasting no longer than a couple of hours. They’re suitable for all the family and particularly beginners, or anyone who just wants to ride at a gentle pace in congenial company

This year, with the support of Cycling UK we’re kicking off the first ride of the summer with a Bike Curious family cycling workshop and Kidical Mass.  If you want to find out more about cycling with kids from families already doing it, come along between 12 and 2 on Saturday 2nd July and have a go!

All of our rides will start at Dock Park at 2pm, every Saturday from the 2nd of July. If you’re interested, just turn up on the day.

    Is anything known yet about the 2015 Lockerbie Loop? I know this is always a ‘late in the day’ event, but I hope to be in the area and able to ride it. I’ve tried the old Lockerbie Loop gmail address but no success. Many thanks.

    Hi Mike, it’s not really anything we’re involved in, but according to the poster we saw on FB it’s on June 21st – if you’re on Facebook it’s posted on our page
