Packed programme for Kirkcaldy Cycling Festival
This year’s Kirkcaldy Cycling Festival features a packed programme of events. The festival runs from Sunday 6th to Sunday 13th August.
The festival kicks off on Sunday 6th August with a family fun day and community cyclocross race in Dunnikier Park. Activities include bike-powered Scalextric, free bike checks and repairs and face painting. There will also be food, refreshments, and music.
Events running during the week include a bike ride and talk with special guest Markus Stitz (author of Bikepacking Scotland) and a fuel your ride cooking class. There are several cycle rides, including the chance to try out some adaptive bikes.
Peter Wooding, our Development Worker (Cycling Outreach) is coordinating the festival. He said: “Kirkcaldy Cycling Festival is a showcase of cycling. We have organised lots of fun events during the week to bring the community together, celebrate cycling and get people out on their bikes. We want people to discover how using pedal power can help them get fit and healthy and tackle the climate emergency at the same time.”
Kirkcaldy Cycling Festival is one way in which Greener Kirkcaldy aims to encourage people to drive less and cycle more by demonstrating local cycle routes, helping them meet other cyclists and giving them the skills and confidence to get out on their bikes and explore. Most festival events are free to attend thanks to funding from Paths For All’s Smarter Choices, Smarter Places programme.
