NEXT RACE Dumfries and Galloway League (5), Glencaple 10 miles, Wednesday 2nd August

Scottish Cycling South West Newsletter

April 2017


Monday night training rides will start from Brownhall School. Meet at the school to start at 6.00pm. They consist of a fast paced group ride where the group(s) will be riding in a chain-gang (through and off) from the school around the Glencaple loop to Dumfries and Galloway College.


From April 1st 2017 there will be a shorter ride planned for anyone new to road cycling or who are new to riding in a group. The frequency initially will be the first Saturday of the month. The distance covered will start at around 20 miles and will be done at beginners pace. The idea is to encourage people to come along and try it out. These rides will be with at least 1 club rider who will advise on the route for the day. A cafe stop will be planned along the way. These will be paced appropriately for beginners to the sport. Meet at the Queen of the South Arena for a 9.30 start.
