We have recently been adding to our walking and cycle networks throughout Dunfermline.
New routes have been developed to link the Public Park with Pittencrieff Park via the civic and historic heart of Dunfermline. The route around the centre takes in notable landmarks such as the Alhambra Theatre, Public Library, Abbot House, High Street, Carnegie Birthplace Museum & Dunfermline Abbey.
The Lyne Burn Corridor project from Rex Park to Duloch has numerous purpose-built cycle routes connecting to two High Schools, Queen Margaret Station and the Queen Margaret Hospital. New wider shared-use paths follow the Lyne Burn water course as it meanders its way through a visually striking green corridor. Have a look at the video below to see the route:
Here are some short videos of new and existing shared-use paths around Dunfermline that you might not be aware of; these can be used as handy traffic-free routes around town.
New off-road, shared-use paths have been developed to link Dunfermline with Rosyth adjacent to the A823 road corridor. This is one of the busiest commuter corridors in Fife and will provide an exciting opportunity to allow people to walk and cycle off-road between the two settlements.

Bikeability cycle training is being rolled out across the town to support delivery of 2 hours of quality PE for all Primary 6 classes.
Some schools now have bikes and this provides a great opportunity to add cycling to the PE curriculum and increase Bikeabilty cycle training within their school and local community. Find out more about Bikeability training in your area.
