Heading out of Dumfries on Kingholm road, the Bankend Loop takes you alongside the River Nith until you reach the coast before heading back again through Bankend and onto Bankend Road back to the centre of Dumfries. There's plenty to see on route as well, the grand Caerlaverock Castle is on the right as you make the turn back towards the start. It's also relatively flat all the way round and at 15 miles it accommodates for all levels of cycling.
