DUNFERMLINE Cycling Club are gearing up to host one of their biggest annual events next weekend - and there's still time to get involved.

On Sunday June 9, they will host their Tour of the Kingdom Cycle Sportive, which will begin and finish at Pittencrieff Park.

Those taking part can opt to ride a distance of either 58 or 92 miles on a new route that will incorporate part of the course pedalled by competitors during the men's elite road race in last year's UCI World Cycling Championships.

Stuart Dalgarno, from Dunfermline Cycling Club, commented: "The Tour of the Kingdom is the big one.

"We've got a new route for this year. We're using some of the route that we use for what we call the bun run, which is a social ride we do on a Saturday and Sunday. It goes out along the coast to Torryburn, Newmills and out through Culross.

"It's open to anybody, really. They don't have to be a keen cyclist, just that they feel they're capable of riding the event."

With the capacity to accept 250 entrants, around 100 have signed up so far, and there will be an option to enter on the day, which costs £30.

As part of that, cyclists will be able to have their time recorded via electronic time keeping; take advantage of refreshment stops for food and drinks throughout the route; receive photographs taken on the day; and be given a finishers medal.

The sportive is one of the club's four major events in their calendar, which also includes the Knockhill Mountain TT, Jack Murray Road Race and the Eileen Roe Shield Women's Road Race.
