Julie and I have done many excellent bike rides over the years, both light touring (usually one week trips) and day or weekend cycle rides almost exclusively in our home county of Fife. Starting with the cycling holidays, in order of ascending severity (but that’s not necessarily in inverse order of enjoyment ;-) <Click here> to jump to day rides.
