World-class cycling returns to the region this weekend – led by the iconic Sports Personality, Bradley Wiggins.
The Tour de France legend will head up Sky Pro Cycling’s bid for the 2013 Tour of Britain when stage one ends at Drumlanrig on Sunday.
British road race champion Mark Cavendish will join Wiggins with Gretna, Annan, Dumfries and Penpont all to be visited during the 209km opening stage of the 10th anniversary tour.
It is the third year in a row that the event has visited the region with Cavendish claiming successive stage wins on the Whitesands in 2011 and 2012.
The tour is growing in stature and some of the world’s top cyclists will be on show this Sunday.
The race is free to watch and you can cheer on the 19 teams from anywhere along the route.
Arriving in Dumfries and Galloway, the race travels along the B721 through Gretna, Eastriggs and Annan before heading to Dumfries through Ruthwell. The riders will arrive in Dumfries past the hospital before travelling through town and along the Whitesands.
They then cross the Bucceluch Street Bridge and up the Glasgow Road before turning on to the B729 to take the back road towards Thornhill through Dunscore and on to the A702.
The last place visited will be Penpont but the riders will be pretty close to Thornhill as the race reaches its final stages around 3.30pm.
Cooler days beset with stunning colours and delicate frost sprinkled landscapes, see the wildlife of Dumfries and Galloway working ever harder to ready itself for the coming months of less abundance and colder temperatures.
These magical landscapes say au revoir to their summer guests but quickly offer up a welcome to new arrivals that recognise the area as one of quiet plenty for the winter months. The excitement of seeing the returning populations of geese and other winter visitors is palpable and the glory of the Red Deer rutting season offers truly magnificent sights and sounds.
