Fund­ing gets wheels in mo­tion to im­prove Mid­dle­den bike trails

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

Bike trails at Kirk­caldy’s Mid­dle­den are to be ex­tended in an ef­fort to at­tract new riders.

Fife Coun­cil and Fife En­vi­ron­ment Trust are pro­vid­ing a to­tal of £35,000 to en­hance the wood­land trails and bring them up to a higher stan­dard.

An ex­pert trail de­signer will be brought in to en­sure all health and safety re­quire­ments are met, although some of the work will be car­ried out by mem­bers of the Mid­dle­den Moun­tain Bike Club and com­mu­nity vol­un­teers.

The club works with Gal­la­town Bike Hub, Kirk­caldy High School and youth groups to en­sure the trails are used and looked af­ter.

They are also used by many oth­ers who walk and cy­cle there.
