Welcome to the website for Fife and Kinross CTC [part of Cycling UK]. Here you'll find details for all your riding needs. If you don't, please do contact us.
Please see the updates section about our 2022 celebrations including the annual lunch, which I need your input from and the Centenary celebrations. Yes we'll be 100 years old next year!!
PLEASE CHECK THE NEWS UPDATES SECTION FOR ANY UPCOMING AMENDMENTS:
Well 2022 has started off with a blast and COVID has reared it's ugly head again! The Annual lunch has been postponed and rescheduled to Saturday 5th March 2022 at 12.30pm. I sincerely hope that as this is more than six weeks since Nicola imposed the restrictions, that we'll all be clear and back to normal working order by then.
The Runs List for the first three months of this year has already been amended once but I've no choice in amending it again and yet again. Plese check for any updates before you actually go on a ride Sorry. Don't want to do too much as I am ever hopeful that 2022 will actually allow us to visit one another's homes again and we'll be able to include that in the runs. I hope that this list is ok for you and comments would be appreciated.
Please remember that Covid procedures still apply in that currently only members from 3 households can sit together and that names and contact details will be required to be recorded for each Meet. Masks should also be worn unless eating or drinking.
Please use common sense and I hope to see you at the Runs.
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 name and contact details are to be provided at each ride. These details are retained for three weeks for Test and Trace purposes. Apart from that, we do also record your name so that we can see who is attending the rides so that they may win an award at the end of the year.
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 [once we have the Covid approval]. 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.
A list of our Rides for January to March 2022 have been compiled and already amended, but this is the up to date list:
