Spring Fling by Bike
Why not tour the Spring Fling studios by bike?
We are working in partnership with Galloway Cycling Holidays and Powerbikes to promote bike and e-bike hire. Not only will this show SF
visitors more of our amazing region but it will help to make their tour around the studios more environmentally friendly.
As well as offering bike hire out of Dumfries and Kirkcudbright, Galloway Cycle Holidays and Powerbikes are offering ‘Spring Fling by Bike’ route maps so you can follow routes designed for bike travel – more information on this coming soon!
