Active travel plans unveiled

A charity say they’ll be working closely with local communities across Stirling, in a bid to get people moving.

Forth Environment Link have launched new active travel plans for residents living in Braehead, Cornton and Bridge of Allan.

They want to remove potential barriers preventing residents from walking or cycling more often.

Bike share officer, Chris James said: “We want to encourage as many people as possible to travel actively in and around Stirling. During this project we discovered that many people wanted to make local journeys by bike, but some didn’t feel confident enough or perhaps didn’t have access to a bike.

“The plans include lots of practical measures to remedy this from cycle training and route planning advice, to bike maintenance workshops and bike share membership. We’ll also be working with the four communities to pursue Cycling Scotland’s Cycle Friendly Community Award.”
