The events will start on Thursday 12 August with the professional teams from The Tour Series lining up on King Street with multi-lap high speed races which will feature the best British domestic teams; both women and men. Following the professional teams will be the opportunity for the club and casual riders to have their bit of the limelight on the closed road circuit on Friday the 13th August. The town-centre will become a festival village with food and drinks offerings alongside trade stalls and the local shops and cafes creating a buzz on King Street.

Saturday 14th the food festival will be the focus however the street will once again become a race route with a hill climb time trial from the town clock to the market hill in the late afternoon.

And on Sunday 15th the cycling action will head out of town to the Galloway Forest for a 74km cycle sportive including 45km on the gravel roads of the forest around the Portpatrick Railway and the Raiders Road.

Castle Douglas Bike And Food Festival need people of all ages and abilities to help them deliver what they think will be a fantastic weekend of action and indulgence.

Food and thank you gifts will be provided to all volunteers as well as the opportunity to be involved in a Castle Douglas showcase.
