Employer Kingdom Off Road Motorcycle Club

This post is part funded by sportscotland Direct Club Investment (DCI). It will initially be for three years subject to project performance.

Background

Kingdom Off-Road Motorcycle Club (KORMC) are currently working on an exciting new project which aims to tackle the issues surrounding anti-social motorbike use and illegal riding within the area of Fife. Anti-social motorbike use is identified as a key concern in 6 out of 7 Fife localities.

A lack of safe and controlled off-road riding provisions within the area consequently results in young people resorting to riding illegally in woodlands, parks and public walkways. Combatting this has now become a priority for the Local Authority.

The purpose of the project is to reduce the levels of anti-social off-road motorcycling activities in the Fife area by providing a safe, legal and controlled environment, in which individuals can take part in a range of motorcycle related activities.

This is an excellent opportunity for an individual to make a significant contribution towards KORMC, creating safer communities and allowing young people to thrive whilst engaging in their chosen sport/leisure pursuit.
