This is the big one! Riding from Lang Toun Cycles to the Forth Road Bridge and back again along the Fife Coastal Path. A full day riding to the Forth Road Bridge and back.
There will be the option for people to ride to the bridge and get the train back / arrange to be picked up. People doing the one-way ride are responsible for arranging their own transport back home.
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.
Lang Toun Cycles’ Project Manager David Glover is leading these events. David is an experienced mountainbiker, racer and multi-day bikepacker. He has a Mountain Bike Leader qualification and has a UKCC Level 2 MTB (United Kingdom Coaching Certificate Level 2 Mountain Bike).
You will be in safe and capable hands and have the opportunity to increase your confidence riding off-road.
Part 1 of the route is 17.5 miles in length with approx. 430ft of elevation
Part 2 of the route is 21.3 miles in length with approx. 755ft of climbing
