Kirkcaldy Cycling Festival is one way in which Greener Kirkcaldy aims to encourage people to drive less and cycle more by demonstrating local cycle routes, helping them meet other cyclists and giving them the skills and confidence to get out on their bikes and explore. The festival is supported by Paths For All’s Smarter Places, Smarter Choices programme.
