Event description
Join us for a guided bike ride from Dock Park to WWT Caerlaverock, with plenty of stops along the River Nith along the way.

About this event

We're delighted to join the Stove Network and WWT Caerlaverock to host this guided ride to the Wetland Centre of approximately 20 miles - but with plenty of stops along the way to look out for wildlife and take in the sights and sounds of the Nith and the estuary.

Each group will be accompanied by a wildlife expert as well as a ride leader and we'll stay in small groups to ensure social distancing. The ride includes free entry into the WWT grounds (but not the Visitor's Centre) and refreshments will be provided on arrival.

Please bring your own binoculars or telescopes as unfortunately we will not be able to share these on the day.

Meet at Dock Park carpark for a 10am start - families welcome, although given the length of the ride overall, we recommend this ride is only suitable for those aged 10 or over.

More about the Wild Goose Festival on the Stove website.

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds before leaving the house and after you return.
