Locals will be given the opportunity to try out Fife Cycle Park on the facility’s opening day, later this month.
As part of a wider programme of community events that is being planned, local people are welcome to come along and cycle the circuit on Wednesday 23 May at a free drop in event running from 3pm until 7pm.
There’s no need to book, you’ll be given a time slot when you arrive. A limited number of bikes and helmets will be available but attendees are encouraged to bring their own!
If you can’t make it on opening day, a follow up community drop-in session will also be running on Thursday 24th May, between 4pm and 8pm.
Convener of Cowdenbeath Area Committee, Cllr Linda Erskine said: “This is a great opportunity for local people to try out this fantastic new facility. As well as putting Lochgelly at the forefront of Scottish cycling, Fife Cycle Park will be very much a community facility that is set to welcome people of all ages and abilities. I urge locals to take advantage of these free community drop-in sessions and help us to celebrate Scotland’s first cycle circuit being on our doorstep.”
Fife Cycle Park secured funding contributions from sportscotland and the Scottish Government’s Regeneration Capital Grant Fund.
