Bikes without barriers
Bikes without barriers is an adapted cycling pilot programme taking place in the City of Stirling. Developed and delivered in partnership with Active Stirling, Fabb Blazing Saddles and Forth Valley Disability Sport, with support from Stirling Council.
 
The programme aims to provide FREE opportunities for adults aged 12yrs+, living with a disability or who face barriers to participating in cycling to enjoy the sense of exhilaration and fun that can be experienced through cycling. The programme has been developed with a focus on participants having fun, building confidence and learning new skills through social weekly cycles, experiencing the beautiful local surroundings in a new way.
 
Weekly adapted cycling sessions

 
From July - September 2019, our first block of adapted cycle sessions were delivered from Forthbank Stadium. The sessions were a great success with 32 participants experiencing cycling with the support of our eight trained adapted cycle leaders. As a result we extended the block from an originally planned six weeks, to nine.

We are currently putting plans in place for more sessions to be delivered across Stirling next year.
