Cycle route sign for Springfield and Ladybank in Cupar, Fife.

NCN 764 Railway Cycle Way, West Fife The former Stirling & Dunfermline railway which closed to passengers in 1968 seen near Bogside, Fife.

Sunflower Junction A country crossroads on the B936 and NCN 776.

Never enough cycle parking at the University of St Andrews - much like Oxford or Cambridge.

Busted lockers, Inverkeithing station

Millennium Milepost MP938 and cycle parking, Inverkeithing station

The top of the track

Start of the track and this isn't the worst bit!!

Aberdour train station

Drunken signs Location: , Newport-on-Tay (Scotland, United Kingdom) Near Gauldry cyclinginfife.wordpress.com

Cycle parking improvements at St Andrews university (during the summer break) few Sheffield stands under shelter in one corner of the car park.

The one way streets near the Old Course do without "no-entry" signs and use "no turn except cyclists" instead (see also #15199).

Contraflow cycle lane on a one-way (for cars) street but no "no-entry" signs. As cars park to their right, the contraflow is in the door zone, but approaching cyclists come from the front, increasing visibility.

Cycle lane on NCN route 1 entering St Andrews

They like wheel benders in St Andrews.

Not enough secure cycle parking. St Salvator College during summer break.

Shared use on pavement. It is well removed from the motor traffic and crosses very few side streets, but it is useless during term time.

Sign for the Kingdom Route cycle route.

Contraflow cycle lane as usual in a door zone, but at least on coming.

No cycling through this shortcut into town.

Cycle Parking at St. Andrews University (during the Summer Break). There are a lot of wheel benders in St. Andrews and people tend to lock their bikes to somethng else instead.

Cycle Parking at New Hall (during the Summer Break). There are a lot of wheel benders in St. Andrews.

New ramp at Kirkcaldy station - a bit tight to actually ride down.

Kirkcaldy ('Kir-kuddy') station - a national cycle network interchange, like some others in this area.

Start of off-road route from Pittenweem to Anstruther

Off-road route from Anstruther to Pittenweem

West end of the Dreelside Walk, Anstruther - not very long!

The Dreelside Walk, on the former railway station site, Anstruther

Unsigned - the start of the Dreelside Walk from the Station Road industrial estate, Anstruther.

More useless signage - it's perfectly obvious at night that the pier is unlit.

I think this may be a cycle route sign.

When even the bike shop just has wheelbender stands, what hope is there?

Lade Braes park, St Andrews (linking to the Viaduct Walk) - cycling may be permitted but it's unclear.

Cycling may be permitted to the right but not I think across the bridge to the left.

Signage required.

Cycling is presumably permitted through this estate, in the absence of signage.

Lots of cycle parking (wheelbenders, though) at a primary school in St Andrews (it's half-term).

Southern end of Viaduct Walk, St Andrews

Viaduct Walk, on former railway south from St Andrews

cycle route from Viaduct Walk to car parks on the site of the former St Andrews station

cycle route in alley leading to staggered toucan (?) crossing, St Andrews

'Cycle Accommodation' in St Andrews.

Unusual motorbike stand.

St Andrews University student union (also six stands on the far side) - the town is so small that there isn't really much of a cycling culture.

Fife Coastal Route signage

Cycle contraflow to the left leading to the Old Course at St Andrews.

Unsigned, but this is the direct route into St Andrews

NCN route 1 passes between two locked gates here but cyclists are still required to give way - madness!

NCN route 1 signage by the Duke's Course, St Andrews

'Danger - Golf in Progress' - at last, a use for that helmet.

NCN route 1 on shared-use footway beside Guardbridge-St Andrews road.

NCN route 1 & Fife Coastal Route signage

A bit of NCN signage needed here.

The Leuchars-St Andrews cycle route uses the old bridge next to the A91 bridge.

Lots of NCN signage at the A91 Guardbridge bridge.

Does this barrier exist for the purpose of forcing pedestrians into the path of cyclists?

Purpose-built section of Leuchars-St Andrews cycle path behind houses.

Guardbridge mill - the cycle route swerves right here, although first-timers could be forgiven for going straight ahead.

Leuchars-St Andrews cycle route on traffic-free bridge at Guardbridge.

End of the only (very brief) on-road section between Leuchars and St Andrews

National Cycle Network route 1 and Fife Coastal Route signage

Shared-use footway by Leuchars RAF base

Cycle link to Leuchars station (in the distance)

Leuchars station - cycle stands and ramped bridge - start of the route to St Andrews.
