LOCAL MATTERS- Fife Council – CycleFife

CycleFife is a £5m walking and cycling, local towns based project which, as a first for Scotland, is focussed on delivery of a comprehensive, integrated approach between key infrastructure improvements and a raft of behavioural change measures and initiatives.

Jointly funded between Fife Council, SUSTRANS and local partners, the 2 year project is delivering improvements to local daily lives in the towns of Dunfermline and Glenrothes.

The two year project started in summer 2014 and aims to deliver a significant cycle network improvement together with a “step-change” active travel programme for ‘next generation’ users to achieve the Scottish Government’s target of 10% of all journeys by bike by 2020 and support their recommendation of at least 2 hours of high quality physical education (PE) for every child, every week. The project has delivered the particular key initiative of increased participation in Bikeability cycle training within the physical education (PE) curriculum focussed on approximately 1500 primary 6 pupils, utilising nearly 400 new bikes procured through the project.
