Cycling: Round Fife

Today I headed North to Fife over the Forth Road Bridge, then the continued on the National Cycle Network to Dunfermline, where I managed to lose track of the sign posts for the National Cycle Network. Rather than turn back, I just continued on and ended up heading through Cowdenbeath, Lochgelly, and Kinglassie before arriving up in Glenrothes. I stopped for a half hour break, before heading South to Kirkcaldy. I then took a cycle East for about 5 miles to Methil.

Realising I was starting to get rather tired, so turned back and got the train from Kirkcaldy to Edinburgh Park, changing at Haymarket for £3.85. It was quite interesting how close to the coast the train got on parts of the journey, with only a cliff of rocks separating the train from the Firth of Forth.

The weather was dry with it only lots of low level cloud coming in from the West. The only time I had some rain was getting off the train at Edinburgh Park staiton.

Haymarket Station was very busy when I was passing through with the Rugby and Football matches that were on in Edinburgh today.

The total distance of the journey was about 50 miles.
