We are a long established club of 90 members whose activities range through road racing, sportives, audax, reliability rides and time trialling. Beginning in the Spring, the club organise a full calendar of time trials and road races. Our regular club runs (50+ miles) leave from The QoS Arena.  We normally divide into 3 or 4 groups. Routes are set in advance and displayed on this web-site with updates on the Dumfries CC Forum. For more information on becoming a member of Dumfries CC please click on the JOIN tab or use the CONTACT tab for enquiries. **NEW FOR 2017** INTRODUCTORY RIDES of 20 - 25 miles starting from Saturday 1st April.

Club Secretary, Dave Niblock has kindly offered to host a post-ride BBQ on Saturday 30th September.  *It will be subject to the weather & cancellation may be called on Thursday 28th if forecast poor.  *For this we need names/numbers by Thursday 29th. Please email any of the committee if you don't use FB, or reply on the club forum.  *It is open to club members & family. *Start Saturday ride at QoS as normal but for folks who want to come from out of town & arrive by car, they can leave their car at Priestlands with clean clothes & drinks in the car. They can shower at my place. *Route for the day will be Corsock, Loch Ken, CD, Dalbeattie & coast (55 odd miles), ending on the New Abbey Road, that way riders can come straight up the lane for a shower. Arriving approximately at 12.30.

Winter Turbo Training / Core Strength Sessions. Our friends from Dumfries and Galloway Triathlon Club have once again kindly invited Dumfries CC members to their winter training sessions. They will take place at the MacLeod Pavilion, Kingholm Road starting on Monday 16th October, 7pm to 9pm. Unfortunately, due to the fact that we have moved away from the Loreburn Hall we will no longer have access to Spin Bikes and would be limited to Turbo Trainers only. The Triathlon Club have a couple of turbo trainers which may be available for use but these would be on a first come first served basis. The prices would remain the same as the 2016/17 sessions at £2.50 per session. See you there!!
