CycleStart are free rides which are designed to meet the needs of beginner cyclists, or for those who have been away from cycling for some time and would welcome the opportunity of easy rides with experienced cyclists.
The rides are open to everyone aged 10-100 (10-17 year-olds need to be accompanied by an adult), and will be regular to allow you to build up experience, fitness and confidence. Rides will be around 5 miles in length and will be at a relaxed pace designed to suit beginners, allowing you to enjoy the company as you cycle along some of the best cycle routes in Scotland.
Initial rides will last about an hour, or a little more, to give everyone a chance to enjoy the experience. Ride Leaders will help you with your basic riding skills, particularly with safety in riding within a group, and awareness of other road/track users.You need to be able to ride, and to have a bike to bring along.
Once you have registered and taken part in your first ride you can come along to further rides whenever you like. On your first ride your Ride Leader will do a quick check to make sure your bike is roadworthy. If you’d like to save a bit of time, you can download the registration details , fill it in and bring it along to your first ride.
CycleStart is supported by Fife Council and by a range of local volunteers including Sustrans.
Events take place in several locations across Fife, check out the links on the left handside.
