New Start Rides

Do you want to try group riding?  Are you considering joining a cycling club? 

 

Dunfermline Cycling Club run a beginners group ride open to non-members. The ride will be guided so riders can relax, learn new skills, build confidence on the road and get to know members of the club.  The ride will start with a bike check and some tips on how to ride on the road in a group. This is a social ride so no riders will be left behind and the group will ride at the pace of the slowest rider. You'll be in the company of experienced riders and members who joined the club through this initiative.
