The club has one of the most prestigious names in the realm of cycling and has a noteworthy heritage. Our membership has included Scottish and World Champions, a Scottish Record holder and a Scottish Cycling Medal of Honour winner. Nonetheless, the club contains (and is open to) cycling and non-cycling members of all abilities.

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 [9/2/20] we run our Reliability Trials. In September [30/9/18] we run Autumn Reliability Runs. Most of the year there is Saturday training & Sunday runs and monthly steady runs. On Saturday the Glenrothes group 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 (Bus stop opposite Pinkertons near Warout Stadium).

Club Meetings - Monthly Club meetings are currently suspended. (Normally held in Lumsden Hall, Freuchie at 7:30pm. on the first Monday of each month.

We adopted a new cycling clothing supplier in 2019 - please view new supplier information at Verge. Club order page to be advised.

Club member Dougie invited FCRC clubmates to a social run on Sun 3rd Nov...
The Social Run was rescheduled for Sunday 3rd of November, hopefully we will get better weather. The run left Falkland car park at 10 a.m. via quiet back roads to Kinross for an early light lunch or just coffee at Unorthodox Roasters café in Kinross High St. Great coffee and nice open sandwiches (I don't get discount for this). Then back to Falkland via quiet roads, about 30 miles in all. All members were welcome whether on bikes or not. I thought it would be nice, as we are a cycling club to have, for once, a social get-together on bikes. The pace will be that of the slowest rider (i.e. me). ----Dougie
