Our cycle on the SW300
Nipper Varney originally created this route for a charity fundraising 24 hour endurance event. It drew in the crowds and it generated over £15000 to charity. All the riders loved the route but all agreed that it was too good to just hammer round in 24 hours, this route needed to be ridden, taken in, memories created and challenges conquered. This is a ride that can be done in any number of permutations from a 24 hour challenge to a 4 - 7 day ride. The choice is yours.
We rode Nipper’s route with Nipper over 4 days setting off on 7th April and have filmed and mapped each day so that you get a feel for the region and the stunning scenery.
Giles Atkinson filmed our journey and the sponsors credited at the end of the videos all contributed to the production of the films.
Sincere thanks to all that have supported our venture, our aim is simple, we want to tell the world that Dumfries and Galloway is a cycling Mecca and we want to make it as easy as possible for fellow cycling enthusiasts to find out about Nipper Varney’s SW300. Nipper’s official site had loads of information on to help you formulate a shorter or longer plan. Below is our 4 day cycle log.
