A NEW programme has been launched to get people back into cycling.
CycleStart, which is being supported by Fife Council, will see trained volunteers lead a series of group rides across Fife that are designed especially for beginner cyclists, or for those who have been away from cycling for some time.
The rides will be around five miles long and will be at a relaxed pace, aiming to take around an hour.
Rides are free, open to everyone from all age groups and will be held regularly to help you to build up experience, fitness and confidence.
The only requirement is that you can ride a bike and have a bike to bring along on the day.
David Seaman, a volunteer cyclist, said: “As an experienced cyclist, it’s great to be able to share my enthusiasm with others who are starting off in cycling and to encourage them in their efforts.
“Passing on knowledge about simple things like when to change gear, makes their experience so much more rewarding.”
You can find out all the dates and times and download a registration form to bring along to your first bike ride at www.fifedirect.org.uk or also by calling 01592 583384.
