World Summer of Cycling comes to Dalbeattie This Weekend

The World’s largest ever cycling event – 13 World Championships across 7 disciplines – takes place across Scotland from 3-13 August, featuring thousands of athletes, including the world’s very best.

To celebrate the event and showcase all this spectacular area has to offer cycling, Dalbeattie Community Initiative (DCI) is excited to announce Rocks and Wheels is hosting the Dalbeattie Bike Fest on Saturday 5th August at the Birchvale Theatre on Maxwell Street.

This free event is designed to inspire our young riders to aspire to future UCI Championships, and will include a mobile pump track, climbing wall, live stream of the downhill final from Fort William, e-bike tours, a photoshoot with a twist, a complimentary bike check and much more – including various stalls, an “unusual” past and present bike show, refreshments, BBQ, music, raffle and a dress up your bike competition.

Our Honorary Patron, Dame Barbara Kelly will be dropping by to announce the winners of the event t-shirt and cycle jersey competitions.

The standard of entries was extremely high, and a selection can be seen in the window of The Initiative’s offices at 71 High Street.

DCI Project Coordinators Maria Rawlings and Tom Marshall have been working hard to pull the event together and they welcome everyone to attend, adding:

“This is an exciting ‘free’ afternoon for friends and family to experience the best Dalbeattie has to offer”.
