Description

Gelston to Crossmichael

Hot on the heels of my weeks holiday on the Isle of Harris I then took a week-long break based in the lovely rural town of Dalbeattie In Dumfriesshire.  Dalbeattie is well known for having some fantastic mountain bike trails - many accessible from the town itself - but I chose to take my road bike and had some fabulous rides in some gorgeous sunny weather. 

This ride is the middle section of a longer (50kms) ride that starts and finishes in the town of Dalbeattie itself. However, I'm still suffering from random freezes of my GoPro Hero 9 camera - going to invest in a new memory card soon - so the starts and finishes of rides are not always as I planned them! The ride starts in the countryside to the south of the village of Gelston before heading North through Castle Douglas and on around the gorgeous countryside roads alongside Loch Ken.  I saw lots of wildlife on his cycle including many buzzards and one red kite. 

This is part 2 of a circular Kirkcudbrightshire route from Dalbeattie. I'd love to say it was deliberately cut into three to suit Kinomap but a combination of traffic lights; GoPro malfunctions and me getting lost meant I had to split it up.
