With the start of March upon us, everyone at Recyke-a-Bike is getting excited for Spring! Lighter nights mean longer rides and hopefully before long, the risk of slippery ice on the roads and trails will be over for another year. We've been hard at work on a number of projects this year so far and have some great events in the pipeline for every kind of cyclist - young, old, experienced or newbie,

What else are we up to?
As usual we've been out about around the Forth Valley delivering Bikeability courses to hundreds of keen young bike riders, but we've also been working hard on our contributions to the Cycle Friendly Employer Scheme. With the weather (hopefully) set to improve soon, have you ever thought about cycling to work? Did you know that we can deliver 'Cycle Friendly Employer' training and certification for your workplace? We've recently been working with Stirling Council - today we held an employee engagement session and one of our Dr Bike mechanics was on hand to demonstrate and fix common bike issues. Would you like to see your employer become a Cycle Friendly Employer? Contact us for guidance on how to take the next step.
