The cycling group aims to have monthly rides on the first Monday of each month beginning in March 2020. The group is open to anyone and while experienced cyclists are most welcome, those who have not been on a bike in a long time or have a bike lying in the shed that hasn't been used for years are also encouraged to join.
Rides will start very short and easy in order to assess members' capabilities and needs, and will gradually build up to distances of 15 - 20 miles, normally in the morning and concluding with lunch in a cafe or pub. These rides will mainly be within or close to the north east Fife area. The aim is, as far as possible, to have traffic-free and off-road rides, so priority will be given to routes on minor roads, tracks and rideable paths. For that reason, a mountain or hybrid type bike is probably preferable to a road bike. However, it is not expected that rides will be technically challenging so no particular mountain bike skills are required. Members are asked to take a turn to organise and lead a ride.
The group members have decided that wearing of helmets and hi-viz tabards or jackets will be mandatory on rides. Please also note that participation in this group is entirely at members' own risk. U3A does not provide personal accident insurance cover.
