Free Ride

Just a month to go to the annual Edinburgh to St. Andrews Cycle Ride (this will be the 27th). It’s FREE to enter if you register before the 1st of June.

After that it’s a fiver. For £11 you can get a lift back for you and your bike. Many people are sponsored to raise money for LEPRA. Ros Kerry of LEPRA says – “we’ll hopefully exceed the 2006 figure of 800. It has increased yearly in my 14 years with the ride.”

It’s 67 miles which is a couple of hours for some people – OK a bit longer, but some cycle back to Edinburgh and arrive before others have reached the Fife coast! For most people it’s a great day out – ice cream at the top of the notorious Cleish Hill. Lunch in Kinross, Afternoon Tea in Freuchie. Slackers can get a train back from Ladybank.

If the date doesn’t suit or you want to create your own ‘Tour of Fife’, check the Kingdom Of Fife Cycleways site. There are a few suggested routes and a range of maps can be ordered from the site (some free).

General Haymarket to Queensferry route – not St. Andrews Ride one.
