Time is dependent on the group, retrobikers stop to chat as much as ride. First laps about 20km so probably at least a couple of hours.
Drumlanrig is a big stately home and gardens open to the public plus there is a bike museum, gift shops and tearoom. Should occupy your good lady if cyclings not her thing :wink:

There is also a really cool adventure playground with death slide treetop walkways and slides, been there with the kids myself and they had a blast. There is also a bail out forest road, about half way round if you want to get back sooner and avoid the rolling pin


:wink:
