Six Rotary Clubs in Fife will hold a family cycling fun event in Tentsmuir Forest on Sunday, June 21, to promote awareness of prostate cancer and to raise funds for Prostate Scotland.

Since nearly one in two men in Scotland is likely to be affected by prostate disease, and one out of 11 of those will go on to develop prostate cancer, funding is vital to help diagnosis and research.

This family afternoon event will take place in a safe off-road environment, with Tayport Football Club as the base for car parking and support facilities (shelter, toilets, picnic area, displays, and so on).

Riders will set off at any time between 3pm and 5pm along flat, easy woodland cycle tracks, well marshalled and signposted.

A shorter route is available for families with very young children, and there are plenty of opportunities for a picnic along both routes.

The Tayport Football Club base will be open until 6.30pm.

The advance entry price is £5 per family, plus a small booking fee: details can be found at

All participants will receive a commemorative medal on completion of the course. As well as raising funds for prostate disease, the event promises to be an enjoyable family outing, a chance to celebrate Father’s Day in an unusual way.

Those taking part should wear appropriate clothing for the weather conditions.

The organising Rotary Clubs behind the ‘cyclofun’ are Anstruther, Cupar, Howe of Fife, North Fife, St Andrews & St Andrews Kilrymont
