Riding from Lang Toun Cycles heading to Glenrothes, ride leader David will show you some of his favourite trails in Glenrothes. This is where he grew up riding his bike. This ride is longer and contains more climbs, excellent preparation for the Big One to the Forth Road Bridge on 3rd September.
With riding on all types of surfaces, there will be elevation changes to challenge you going up as well as down, and plenty of chances to share stories and the fun of off-road riding.
These rides form part of a series building up to The Big One on Sunday 3rd of September. A ride to the Forth Road Bridge and back.
People can sign up for one, some or all of these rides (subject to availability)
