A long weekend to welcome spring and spoil yourself


"Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul"


13/14/15 April


20/21/22 April


We think our little bit of Scotland is one of the best places in the world to ride a bike, and we are going to try and prove that.

Routes are an art form, well we like to think so.

Hills at the right point but not too many. Great views, quiet roads and coffee and cake just when you need it.

the plan

A long weekend in April at The Selkirk Arms to welcome spring and spoil yourself a little. Somethings to look forward to, a goal to start the cycling year by turning the wheels on the quiet roads of Galloway. Warren & Esther of Galloway Cycling Holidays are bike bonkers, you knew that and we know there are others. The weekend is designed for road cyclists and triathletes and those happy with rides of 40 miles and more with a few undulations. Routes will be stunning, all will feature coffee and cake They can be self guided but as many as possible will be guided. All will have maps, a cue sheet or gps files so you can concentrate on the ride. 

Warren and Esther have raced sportives in the UK and Europe, done mind numbingly long endurance events and rode self supported 35,000 miles around the world. The weekend will be an opportunity to meet them and new bike buddies, to talk bike talk and relax.
