Dalbeattie Initiative were previously involved in the organisation behind the Solway Sportive. This event is an opportunity to experience some of the same roads but riding in a reverse direction, including some quieter sections with stunning views, with a choice of two distances on road. For 2024 there is a third route option of a mixed road/offroad route which includes sections on core path and forestry roads for riders looking to test themselves with a new challenge. The two road routes, Yellow 59km (37miles) and Blue 113km (70miles), are circular and share the same roads with an extra loop to extend the distance for the Blue route. The mixed Red route 71km (44miles) is a figure of eight where the first half mirrors the road routes with two offroad sections along the way before splitting off and following a mostly off road route back to Dalbeattie for the second half. For the Red route we recommend a bike with at least 35mm tyres due to the rougher surface on the off road sections.

All routes start and finish at Dalbeattie Learning Campus in Dalbeattie which has free parking, changing and toilet facilities.

There will be one feeding station on the Yellow and Red routes and an additional feeding stations on the Blue route. Food and drinks will be provided for all participants at the finish.

The event is suitable for everyone with a reasonable level of fitness depending on the route entered.                             All participants to be back to the HQ by 4pm

Timed certificates will be presented to all finishers.
