Black Route - 165 km/103 miles - (Climbing - 1,661 m / 5450 ft) Start time: 7:30am
Our longest and most challenging route, the black route, is not for the faint of heart. Taking you along the beautiful coast to Leven, it then takes on the first big climb out of Upper Largo and swings inland to Ceres. The route then follows a selection of rolling roads towards the former Royal Burgh of Falkland then towards the coast of the River Tay at Newburgh before tackling the 2 mile long 700ft climb over Glentarkie. The route then heads back to Dunfermline via Loch Leven, Kinross, Cleish and includes another feed station. The route takes place along many quiet and scenic roads along with numerous climbs. Most notably is the Cleish Hill Climb which is a real leg tester after a long day in the saddle.
Red Route - 112km - 70 Miles - (Climbing - 1,065 m / 3495 ft) - Start time: 8:00am
The Red route, takes in the best Fife has to offer. Following the coast up to Leven, it then winds its way inland towards the former Royal Burgh of Falkland. After passing through the history rich town the route heads west, making a brief pass along the tip of the beautiful Loch Leven. The route then continues to head back to Dunfermline via Kinross and over the Cleish hill.
