Today I took advantage of the lovely weather for a favourite run of mine to Kilmarnock, Dumfries and back via Lochmaben and Beattock. I took a photograph of a sculpture I've noticed before on the cycle path near Beattock consisting of cycle road signs and bearing the name "Toulouse". I can't find any explanation for it on the web.

Why? or should that be pourquoi?
The sign doesn't help.


  1. Apparently something to do with a Glasgow to Toulouse cycle route, see

  2. I read this but it seems unlikely. 950 miles (including crossing the English Channel!) to stop dead in Toulouse?
