A few years ago I tried to get more cycle racks installed at Stirling station.  Between First Scotrail and Stirling Council, I didn't get anywhere. It's good to see that one set of racks at the…Continue

Bikes on trains!

I have noticed that the train from Dunblane to Edinburgh always has too many cyclists trying to get their bikes onboard, and as there's only two bikes allowed on, there's always a mad rush with…Continue

Cycling in Stirling Survey

A student at the University of Stirling is currently undertaking a research project about cycling in Stirling and would like the help of local cyclists with a survey he has devised to help him look into the factors of why people do and don't cycle in Stirling. He would be very grateful if any of you could take a few moments to fill it out - thanks!!

Retro Ride - Crit Under the Castle

Posted by Cycle Stirling on August 2, 2014 at 13:18 0 Comments

As part of Stirling Bike Club's 'Crit on the Castle' event on Sunday 10th August we will be riding our retro bikes round a lap of the city centre Crit course.

This is a unique opportunity to dust off your tweed/flares/Hypercolor t-shirts*, look out that monocle and grab your Penny Farthing, BMX Burner, California Beach Cruiser or your Flying Scot road bike and ride it round the Crit course!

So tell your friends, your Aunties and Uncles, your Granny and Grandpa's and even your Great Granny and Grandpa! It's time to take those beloved old bikes for a spin!

*The choice is yours!

The Stirling Cycle Hub Retro Ride is being run in association with the 'Crit on the Castle' organisers, Stirling Bike Club. This is a ticketed event and tickets can be purchased through the British Cycling website

Women's 100 Challenge

Posted by Stirling Cycle Hub on July 3, 2014 at 11:41 0 Comments

Here we come again ladies! Join the Stirling Cycle Hub to ride an international cycle challenge with thousands of other women around the world on Sunday 20th July 2014. Last year there were over 4000 women that participated in this event and they expect to double it this year!

To celebrate the come back of women on La Course by Le Tour (27th July) and to coincide with the Etape du Tour (20th July), the day that amateur cyclists are given a chance to ride a major stage of the Tour, Rapha is calling for a second year to women across the world to ride 100kms of their choosing.

The Stirling Cycle Hub will be leading a challenge ride for this on fairly flat quiet roads around Stirlingshire at an easy pace – it won’t be a race! The ride will follow a figure-of-8 route allowing participants to complete 50kms or the full 100kms. There will be refreshments at the hub for all the returning riders and a member of the cycle hub staff will travel with us as domestique, providing us with route support, puncture repair assistance and a support car.

Details of the routes can be found here:

First Half – 46km Around the Forth Loop:

Second Half – 59km Stirling – Top of the World – Lake of Menteith Loop:

Please register your interest in advance by emailing cyclehub@forthenvironmentlink.org

Let us know which distance you intend to complete and, if doing only…
