The event has passed.

To celebrate the UCI World Paracycling Championships, two evenings of must see, inspiring entertainment are taking place at the beautiful venue of the Usual Place in Dumfries town centre.
Both evenings are intended to create a warm welcome to the town for any paracyclist, coach, visitor or local residents who want to come along. A bar will be open on both evening, though no food will be served.

Wednesday 9th August

8pm – Travelling Perspectives, Thinking Fast and Slow £6 (£4 concessions)

Markus Stitz will be talking about his experiences circumnavigating the globe on a single speed bike, cycling 21,000 miles across 26 countries in less than a year.

In 2019 he successfully completed the Highland Trail 550, the Silk Road Mountain Race and the Atlas Mountain Race – three of the hardest bikepacking races in the world.

Markus will be joined on stage by cycling journalist, Trevor Ward. Trevor Ward is a cycling journalist who writes a monthly column for Cyclist magazine and contributes regularly to The Guardian cycling blog and Cycling Weekly. He has cycled to the Sahara Desert without a smartphone and worked as a professional cyclist (masquerading as a postman).

Both sessions will be hosted by Warren Sanders, who himself spent four years cycling around the world and now runs the highly successful Galloway Cycling Holidays with his partner Esther Tacke.

A full evening ticket that covers both events costs £9 (£6 concessions)
