Landlubbers get on their bikes

CYCLISTS will be putting Dumfries on the map this weekend with two events to raise the profile of cycling in the area.

Tomorrow (Fri) bikers will be treated to a free breakfast in recognition of their role keeping the town moving, and on Saturday there will be a mass bike ride for kids.
The pirate-themed family friendly bike ride from Dock Park to Heathhall forest to ride on the cycle track, is part of the international Kidical Massive.
Cycling Dumfries co-ordinator Sally Hinchcliffe is one of the organisers and said: “We’ve had an amazing success with our family bike rides this summer – with participants cycling a total of 892 miles altogether – and we didn’t want the fun to stop, so when we heard about Kidical Massive we jumped at the chance to join the global celebration of kids on bikes.
“We’re hoping to gather a record number of kids on bikes dressed as pirates – Dumfries won’t know what’s hit it. In combination with our third annual bike breakfast, we’ll be showing the world what a cycling town Dumfries has become.”
