This event will take place on 2nd April, with the “Off” around 12.00. Sponsored by The Leslie Bike Shop, each member of a team of four riders cycles a route of approximately four miles;as one member gets ‘home,’ the next sets off until everyone has cycled two laps.
Each team comprises one girl and three boys (maybe using these terms loosely – upper age limited only by personal bravery) and the purpose of the day is to raise funds and have fun. Pies, soup and other liquid sustenance available throughout the day, with a disco at night to round things off.
The route goes south from the clubhouse, round the park, down King Street, west along the main road to Newton of Falkland, right on to the Lathrisk road, right again at the road back into Freuchie, up past the Albert Tavern (no time for a pint on this occasion, but see the Courier’s review at http://www.thecourier.co.uk/News/Fife/article/1781/albert-tavern-named-best-pub-in-fife.html) then up the hill and back to the club. In two previous years, best times were just over an hour and three quarters – 1:50:26 and 1:48:52 respectively. Lap record is 12 minutes 16 seconds, so now you know what to beat. Just getting round two laps is plenty for some of us!
At the time of writing (afternoon of Sunday 6th March) we have about ten teams entered, so there is room for two or three more – we would welcome entries for other clubs. For more details and an entry form, phone Dave McIntosh on 07596 759 801
