The Forest In Fife on a Fike! (Bike)

So I have a vague plan ... early one Saturday morning, a group of us catch the train to Dundee and spend two days cycling the costal route down into Edinburgh. We find some random wood to camp in on the Saturday night and (some of us) enjoy fish and chips from Pittenweem which is apparently even bet...
