St Andrews is hosting The 150th Open, from the 10th to the 17th of July, and the town is set to be busier than ever. We're encouraging residents, visitors, and those who work locally to walk, wheel or cycle around the town, to help avoid road congestion.
As part of the Council’s commitment to making daily journeys or commutes into travel that is healthier and better for the environment, we're working with Gallatown Bike Hub to help you keep your bicycle in peak condition.
Free 'Dr Bike' sessions are running at Church Square, South Street, St Andrews, from 2nd to 17th July, 10 am to 6 pm. Bikes will be given a full health check, to help people get out and about actively. These checks are really useful for those whose bike has been in storage for a while or needs a check after wear and tear.
Cars are the largest producer of transport-related carbon emissions and a huge number of vehicle journeys are 1km or less. We know that The Open means that St Andrews will be busier than ever; swapping to sustainable transport options, where possible, can help cut congestion as well as take a step towards tackling the climate emergency.
High-quality spaces for cycling, wheeling and walking are being delivered across Fife. This is creating better streets, a happier school run, and healthier, more pleasant journeys to work and the shops.
