If you happen to have Landranger 59 and Bamm Bamm’s mountain bike
Leave Guardbridge on the National Cycle Route – up the hill to Strathkinness and along the High Road until it plunges down to Kemback, along the River Eden and on to Pitscottie. Another three climbing miles to Crossgates. Rewarded by a six mile descent into St Andrews – follow the cycle path on the line of the former railway to Leuchars and beside the golf course. Hilly but perfect. 19 miles. Quicker than a round of golf.
