EAST Neuk First Responders annual sponsored cycle ran smoothly on Sunday, even if the same couldn’t be said for the 

The local lifesaving charity teamed up with a group of cyclists from St Andrews University to cycle 45 miles around north east Fife.

Gillian Duncan, East Neuk First Responders chairman, thanked everyone who turned out and supported the cycle, adding she was glad everyone survived the “very hilly” ride.

She continued: “Every one really enjoyed the day especially the lunch stop which was provided by Ruby.

“Ruby is one of our responders and has for both of our sponsored cycles produced a fantastic spread of homemade food including pasta, rice, quiche, fruit, cakes etc.

“Entries were slightly up on last year with 54 cyclist entering and when all sponsor money is collected we should have at least matched last year’s total (£2000), which is fantastic.”

The university cyclists joined the Responders as they are in training for the Papal Bull Cycle Relay from Spain to St Andrews this August.
