  PLEASE CHECK THE NEWS UPDATES SECTION FOR ANY UPCOMING AMENDMENTS: This year's AGM will be held on 3rd November at Kingskettle.  please see details in updates. 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 use a system of Rendezvous runs and these take place on a Saturday and on every alternate Wednesday. The Wednesday runs are Veterans' runs  and are usually attended by retired members although all are welcome.  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.

Information about the group rides 

Our Runs List has now been compiled for the year.  This is always subject to change so do check before setting out on your ride.  As you know, our rides are Meet rides but this doesn't mean that it can't also be a Group ride, just find out who else is going and meet up so that you have company on the way there.  We always have small group rides after lunch as we normally start off heading in the same direction.  If there's somewhere you'd like to be included in the ride, then let Linda, Nan or Kaye [the Runs Team] know and we can consider it either as an ad hoc run, a replacement run or for next year.  These are your runs, so let us know where you want to go.  The Runs list for the next three months are here but the full copy is attached
