About us 

PLEASE CHECK THE NEWS UPDATES SECTION FOR ANY UPCOMING AMENDMENTS:

The Runs List for the next three months of this year have now been published and hopefully they won't need any further amendments.  Please do check for any updates before you actually go on a ride, Sorry.  I have added a Centenary Calendar to let you know what we are planning for this our 100th year.

Please remember that Covid procedures still apply and Masks should also be worn unless eating or drinking.  We are hoping to be in a position to reintroduce home visits by the Autumn.  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.
