The picturesque fishing town of Kirkcudbright sits in the beautiful Galloway countryside where quiet roads are perfect for cycling along the coast and up and down rolling hills. Known as The Artists' Town, Kirkcudbright has been home to many distinguished artists who have been drawn to the beauty of the area and its special light. Hotels, guest houses and self catering cottages offer a variety of accommodation options in this lovely corner of south west Scotland.
Starting and finishing in Kirkcudbright, three amazing routes (30 miles, 67 miles and 81 miles) cater for different levels of fitness and stamina. All routes take riders through a variety of quiet, beautiful scenery along the coast, beside lochs, through woodland and up and down some fantastic hills, including a beautiful gravel section on the longer route. Food, water, first aid kits and toilets are available on all routes.

Galloway ReCycle Sportive
is an annual summer event organised by the Rotary Club of Kirkcudbright to raise money for charities. Run by volunteers, its costs are kept to a minimum so that almost all the money raised goes directly to the charities themselves:
