Welcome to Kirkcudbright Cycling!
If you fancy going out for a ride with other cyclists, check the website to see who's going out and when, or post up your own intended ride so that others may join you (please make sure you include the date, time, starting venue and an idea of average speed).
Hope to see you out cycling soon...
Rides posted up on this website are suggestions to come along and join in rather than organised 'led' rides and cyclists joining them are fully responsible for themselves.
