Summer Is Here With The Cycling Dumfries Ride Series

A series of family friendly summer rides leave at 2pm on Sundays in July and August. All rides start next to Nithsdale Rowing Club.

Each ride is suitable for everyone – from nervous beginners and families with young children, to people who just like to get out and ride sociably at a relaxed pace.

Starting at around four miles, rides build up gradually to 11 miles (out to Mabie Forest). Routes use Dumfries’s cycle paths, quiet back streets and rural roads. Riding in a group also gives the additional security of ‘safety in numbers’.

All rides have a break in the middle, sometimes at an interesting spot (or a nice view) with a chance for a rest, a chat and some refreshments. Please bring your own drinks and snacks!

It’s no longer essential, but it helps us if you book in advance. This helps keep numbers manageable and we know to wait for you before setting off! You can book at
