We have produced a cycle and walking map for the area covering:
- City of Stirling
- Bridge of Allan
This is to try to encourage more people to walk and get onto their bikes.
The map highlights suggested routes for cyclists, wherever possible making use of cycle lanes and tracks. Travelling by bike is a great way to get around the city and surrounding area, and is often quicker than travelling by car.
Copies are available in various locations including:
- the local bike shops
- Stirling Council Office (Teith House, Kerse Road)
- One Stop Shop
- The Cycle Hub (located at Stirling railway station)
Other useful cycle maps for the Stirling area include:
Stirling University's 'Get active getting there' maps includes a map of the campus and a map showing routes between Stirling city centre and the University.
Cycle Journey Planning
It's now possible to get journey planning information for your cycle rides so whether it's your daily commute, a journey to visit a friend or perhaps you would just want new ideas for cycle rides, why not try using a cycle journey planner to work out the best route for you.
National Cycle Network
The National Cycle Network (NCN) covers the whole of the country and was developed by Sustrans. It provides a network of recognised and well signed routes that you can use for leisure or commuting. These routes are often off road or on quiet back roads.
We have a number of signed NCN routes in the Stirling Council area.
NCN 76 - Round the Forth - a 76 mile circular linking Stirling to Edinburgh
NCN 7 -Sunderland to Inverness taking in Aberfoyle, Callander, Glen Ogle and Killin
Remember to ride responsibly when you're out. Find out more about the Nice Way Code and the Scottish Outdoor Access Code to see being responsible involves. If you're more into mountain biking, check out the Do the Ride Thing.
Stirling Area Local Access Forum has also produced 'Enjoy Stirling's Outdoors - Your Guide to Responsible Access' to help you on your way.
