Sunday 17 June 2018 10.30am: UNICEF Biking the Bounds: The Civic Week Ride – A family ride around Dunbar and out to West Barns. Around 11kms at a very leisurely pace, approx 1 hour. Marshalls help with junctions and we regroup to allow everyone to ride together. See Civic Week programme. This year’s ride is asking for a donation for UNICEF marking the 30th anniversary of the Dunbar Group.
Saturday 23rd June 5pm till late: MIDSUMMER CYCLE. Also for Civic Week, Dunbar Cycling Group invites you to join us on a ride to the Goblin Ha’ in Gifford for dinner. We’ll leave the Bleachingfield Centre at 5pm and aim to be eating by 7.30pm, this should give us time to cycle home (mostly downhill!) before it gets dark. Bring lights, just in case! Booking essential – text Morag Haddow on 07966 491 961.
