A leisure cycle around the Sanquhar area.

This route takes us on some peaceful and secluded B roads and trails south of Sanquar. There is a short 8-10Km section on a forestry road, so a bike with wider tyres is the best option.

It's essential (as always) you have checked your brakes before this event.

As soon as we set off we are climbing for about 15 Km up to a height of 450m. With a couple of exceptions it's not very steep. We'll take a break and then start our decent.

The remaining part of the route is mostly downhill back to Sanquhar. A thought could be given to bringing a change of base layer for the decent as you will be sweaty from the climb.

If we can, we shall of course have a refreshment of some kind at the end.

This is a group event and not an individual time trial - please stay with the group. This is particularly important on remote cycles such as this one.
