IMPORTANT UPDATE:

Our AGM date for this year has now been rearranged for TUESDAY 27TH APRIL 2021 AT 6PM.  This is to enable those who are working to hopefully attend the AGM.  If you wish to attend, please contact us on sec.fifeandkinrossctc@gmail.com so that we can send you the Agenda and other pertinent details prior to the meeting, which will be held on Zoom. We would ask that you advise us of your name and Cycling UK membership number.  Your connection will more than likely commence on mute so that there are no interruptions during the meeting, however, there is a facility for you to let us know that you have a question and this will be dealt with under Any Other Competent Business at the end of the meeting.  Our meeting normally only last for 30 minutes or thereabouts.  I am pleased to advise that we will also have additional Cyclng UK representatives at the meeting who will be able to update you of their activities on your behalf.

Hoping to see you at the AGM

About us 

PLEASE CHECK THE NEWS UPDATES SECTION FOR ANY UPCOMING AMENDMENTS:

Please see Notifications for more info.

In Fife and Kinross, due to the wide distribution of our members, there is no ‘HQ Meeting Place’ but we meet regularly throughout the year to enjoy cycling, not just in the local countryside, but also further afield depending on the enthusiasm of our members.

We also keep in touch electronically on our web site and our Facebook page at Fife and Kinross CTC, part of Cycling UK, sharing photographs, stories, routes, views and opinions.

How our runs are organised

We have a Covid Officer and when lockdown is over and we are permitted to ride together again, then further information will be provided.

Normally we use a system of Rendezvous runs and these take place on a Saturday and on every alternate Wednesday during the colder months then weekly from April to September. The Wednesday runs are Veterans' runs  and are usually attended by retired members although all are welcome, even non members but we would eventually ask you to become a member of Cycling UK.  Check out our Facebook page to see who intends to go and which route they are thinking of taking. We also have a few Sunday runs in the summer which are group runs, led by a rides leader, usually meeting in the morning at an easily accessible car park. This means we publish a Runs List (see below or to the right) which gives a meeting place and this could be in the open air, or in a café, pub, Community Hall or even in someone's home. When these take place in someone's home the Host/Hostess will provide the tea or coffee and members will bring a packed lunch. Open air meets means providing ones own drink and sandwiches but tea is available in Community Halls and we charge £1 for tea and the rent of the Hall. All runs can also be group rides by communicating on Facebook who is intending to ride that day and where they would like to meet up, but this would not have a specific ride leader.

These meets are arranged all over Fife and Kinross and we try to vary these so that they involve different routes. The meeting time is usually 12.30 and for the Rendezvous Rides members make their way singly or by arrangement in small groups.
