We are a long established club of 90 members whose activities range through road racing, sportives, audax, reliability rides and time trialling. Beginning in the Spring, the club organise a full calendar of time trials and road races. Our regular club runs (50+ miles) leave from The QoS Arena.  We normally divide into 3 groups. Routes are set in advance and displayed on this web-site with updates on the Dumfries CC Forum.

The club are planning to arrange a 2 hour training session at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, Glasgow sometime in early 2017. Most likely February or March. It is first come, first served and all the slots are Sunday's with either a 5.00-7.00pm or 7.00-9.00pm time. A qualified track coach is mandatory therefore arrangements have been made for this. Maximum number of riders is 30. Bikes and shoes will be available to hire on the day. **PLEASE NOTE** the session does NOT require or contribute to the accreditation process. To register your interest EITHER go to the Dumfries Cycling Club Facebook page (link above) and reply to the relevant post, or email myself (see Committee page for email details). I will list the provisional dates once I have submitted the application, and then confirm what we are offered once this has been communicated by Scottish Cycling, so that people can check their availability. Thanks. Garry C.

Winter training opportunities - see below.

1) Our friends at Dumfries & Galloway Triathlon Club have kindly invited DCC members to join them for weekly turbo training and core strength sessions. These are planned for a Wednesday evening from mid October at the Loreburn Hall. A one hour turbo session, with progression over the course of the winter, working on threshold, endurance and speed would then be followed by a 30 minute core session.

2) Cameron Scade is working towards the British Cycling Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Cycling. He is organising a series of six sessions designed to build confidence in core cycling techniques, group riding and bike-handling skills. The aim of these traffic-free sessions is not to build fitness but simply to support riders in feeling confident enough to enjoy and get the most out of their riding, especially when riding with others. The venue will be the David Keswick Centre with dates and times to be confirmed. Priority will be given to DCC members but these sessions are also open to riders (aged 18+) who may not yet be members of the club. 

If you are interested in taking advantage of either (or both!) of these opportunities, please get in touch via the Facebook page or email racedumfriescc@gmail.com
