Whether you cycle this as local active travel and commuting, for health and enjoyment or this is part of a longer cycle trip around North Fife and the ‘Tay Loop’ your quick comments will be very welcome.
Please reply before noon on Wednesday 4th September – I will look at comments received then for a meeting the next day.

Fife Cycle Centre are hosting an E-Bike demo day on Friday 14th June, 4pm to 6pm at Tentsmuir Forest.
We are holding an e-bike demo afternoon at Tentsmuir Forest car park next Friday between 4-6pm.
There will be a wide selection of electric bikes available for you to demo free of charge. You can get your leg over e-road / e-mountain / e-hybrid and take them through their paces through the forest and on the roads. It’s a great opportunity for a prospective buyer to get a real feel of how e-bikes work and all the benefits they bring. Also existing owners may want to demo the latest tech!
Everyone is welcome – will be a good laugh and a good chance to ride some really cool bikes.
Well done to our P5-7 cyclists who took part in round 2 of the Dirt Crit Series at Fife Cycle Park on Tuesday 21st May. They clocked in some great times and were a credit to their schools.
Over 80 pupils from Fife participated in the 2019 Primary School Dirt Crit Series organised by Active Schools Coordinators, Senior Outdoor Education Instructor Allan Dunlop and Lochore Meadows staff and Fife Cycle Park staff. The aim of the series was to increase opportunities to take part in competitive outdoor cycling while raising awareness of links to local community clubs and sessions.
Our Bikeability Coordinator Shealagh attended along with Cycle Fife to help raise the profile of Bikeability and get more people involved.

May’s Taycoasters ride will start at 1.30 on Sunday the 26th at the car park at the south access to the Tay Road Bridge. We will be heading out along the nature trail to Balmerino Abbey
. This is a very ancient building, now in ruins, but with a great deal of history attached. There is no charge for admission, but there is a box for donations. There are no cafes or shops in Balmerino, so we suggest you either have lunch before you join us or bring a snack and a drink to have while we take or break at the Abbey. Some of the route is hilly, but the steepest hills are short and we don’t mind if you get off and push your bike up them. We will ride a small circle round Balmerino and then return to the bridge by the same route.The total distance is about 14 miles and we aim to be back at the bridge by 5.00.
We hope you can join us – and feel free to invite your friends.
If you intend to come along or would like to be added to their email group list to get future rides information directly
