Event description
We're starting off the year as we mean to go on - cycling! Joins us for our traditional New Years ride, the 20 mile Caerlaverock Circuit.

About this event

Because of COVID, our rides have changed a little. In order to manage numbers safely and keep within Scottish Government guidelines, we will limit rides to 15 and participants must book in advance (the rides are still free though). We will no longer have a cafe stop mid ride, so we suggest people bring something to sustain them and we’ll take a break somewhere suitable for people to refuel. This will be outdoors – so dress not just for the cycling but also make sure you will be warm enough when we stop, or perhaps bring a couple of warmer layers to put on.

If you have any questions about these rides or don’t know if they will be for you, feel free to email cyclingdumfries@gmail.com for more information.

Rides will continue regardless of the weather unless in the opinion of the ride leader it would be dangerous (or no fun), so bring a waterproof and whatever you need to stay warm on (and off) the bike. All of the routes will keep to quiet rural roads, residential streets and cycle paths wherever possible and the pace will be ‘at the speed of chat’.
