Cyclists from the leading British Team UK Youth will join Olympic and Commonwealth medalist and Race Directos Mick Bennet, along with representatives from EventScotland, Dumfries and Galloway Council and Scottish Borders Council.
The riders will visit the Scottish Cycle Museum at the castle, where staff will show them the huge comparisons between the build and speed of vintage bikes and modern race bikes.
