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 sessions will take place every Thursday from The PEAK at Stirling Sports Village, meeting between the sports centre and Forthbank Stadium.  Starting from Thursday 1 August and running for nine weeks until Thursday 26 September 2019.
