A Massive Thank You To All Volunteers, Marshalls & Contributors At Celebration Of Cycling

The weekend’s wet weather did not stop eager cyclists heading to Gladstone Park at Penpont, Dumfries and Galloway on Saturday and Sunday to enjoy the KPT Development Trust – Celebration of Cycling . 

There was action packed cycling fun, games and activates all weekend. Smoothie bikes and Muckmedden pump tracks were a hug hit. Sunday saw over 50 riders on the mass led bike ride.

Fancy dress was won by Laura Young as a flamboyant flamingo!

Senga Greenwood, Development Officer, KPT Development Trust Said “Now that our weekend Celebration of Cycling event’s all over  I need to thank the people that made it all possible ; all of you who contributed and gave so freely and happily of your time! I apologize that this is a little impersonal but I’m sure you’ll understand, writing to everyone of you individually would be time consuming.
Given the weather forecast we were very happy with the turn out, and more importantly everyone who participated had a great time and had lots of fun. A strong representation from young families, who are the future of cycling in our area!
Without singling out, I feel I do need to recognise our main funder Ian Barr and  D&G Council Events,  Ross from Frothy Bike Co. for all the cool prizes and DGWGO as a fab media partner that really got the event out to a wider audience. Our KPT FB page has had a really strong following both in the lead up, and during the event.
A big shout out to Maureen, for the amazing BBQ both days, just the sustenance the riders needed after the mass bike ride.
A heartfelt thank you again from myself and the KPT team.
Kind regards as always,
