Bikes without barriers is an adapted cycling pilot programme taking place in the City of Stirling. Developed and delivered in partnership with Active Stirling and Forth Valley Disability Sport, with support from Stirling Council.

The programme aims to provide opportunities for adults aged 16yrs+, 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.
