There are many benefits to joining Dunfermline Cycling Club, not least the chance to be able to talk to like-minded people with a wealth of experience. Fellow club members will be able to give you lots of advice on what equipment to buy, which events to do, cycling etiquette, how to prepare for racing and generally make cycling a more enjoyable experience.
One of Scotland’s oldest clubs, Dunfermline and District Cycling Club was formed in the spring of 1935 following the amalgamation of the Russell Wheelers and the Dunfermline Thistle CC (who were joined later that year by the members of the Dunfermline Bluebell CC).
A Russell Wheelers’ trophy (The Struan Cup), dated 1930, is still in use as one of Dunfermline CC’s championship cups today. The club’s activities in the 1950s very much centred around touring with most racing members alternating their weekends between racing and youth hostelling.
