History
The club was formed in 1931 and originally comprised of members who could do a 'century'. It should be remembered that this feat was undertaken prior to the invention of "Tri-bars" and most of the technology modern bikes now have as standard. This entry requirement has since been waived.
The various editions of the club racing colours can be seen on the left and right panels.

Activities
For 24 years the club organised the Tour of the Kingdom, one of the top races in Britain, and was a main event in the Premier Calendar series. Today we enjoy training and racing both on and off-road along with other Fife clubs. On the 2nd Sunday in Feb [14/2/16] we run our Reliability Trials. In September [27/9/15] we run Autumn Reliability Runs. Most of the year there are Saturday & Sunday morning training runs. On Saturday the Glenrothes group leaves Colydean Footbridge 9:30 and meets the North Fife group near Cupar (Uthroggle) at 10am.

Racing season
During the racing season from April to September there are Tuesday training runs and mid-week time trial racing. There is also a scenic 12.6 mile TT round Loch Leven.

Off season
During the off-season from Oct - March there are 1hr+ training runs on Tuesday at 6:30. See the schedule for options of short steady laps of a street-lit circiut, or longer faster laps around the town.

Club Meetings
Monthly Club meetings are held in Lumsden Hall, Freuchie at 7:30pm.
usually the first Monday of each month.

New members and enquirers welcome.
