Once again, Castle Douglas Rotary Club organised a Rotary Ride in aid of Prostate Scotland. This year there was an excellent turnout of riders ranging in age from 4 to 73!
34 riders enjoyed the Kirkcudbrightshire countryside during the annual Rotary Ride which started from the British Legion in Castle Douglas. With riders aged from 4 to 74, there was a diverse range of competitors and ability. Most riders opted for the more challenging 45 mile circuit taking in Kirkcudbright, the Doon Bay and Twynholm before heading back to Castle Douglas. With a warm welcome and refreshments back at the Legion an enjoyable Sunday morning was had by all the riders.
Riders kindly donated £410 to Prostate Scotland to help with the work which the charity does to prevent deaths from Prostate Cancer with 11000 men dying of the disease each year.
