Stirling Festival of Cycling and Walking is back for 2019, with a fun filled day of free activities for the whole family to enjoy. The annual event, organised by Stirling Active Travel Hub, will take place at Stirling High School on Sunday 11 August from 10am – 4pm.
Topping the bill are The Clan, Scotland’s cycle stunt team. They’ll perform death-defying stunts, from crazy flips to big drops at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.
There’ll also be lots of opportunities for families to test out their own cycling skills, from taking part in the Pedal for Parkinson’s charity bike ride which kicks off at 8am to tackling bike tracks suitable for kids of all ages.
Families are also encouraged to bring along their own bikes for expert advice and bike safety checks by Recyke-a-Bike’s Dr Bike, to ensure their summer holiday cycling adventures are trouble free.
Stirling Active Travel Hub’s Holly Hunter said: “This year’s festival is going to be bigger and better than ever. We’re offering a wide range of tasters to inspire everyone, whatever their age and ability, to get more active. We’ll have everything from balance bike activities for the little tots and e-bike trials for adults who want to boost their pedal power, to led bike rides and a pump track where you can tackle bumps and jumps. But the fun isn’t limited to those on two wheels. There’ll also be a chance to try out Nordic Walking with a trained instructor, sample food from local producers, go on a nature walk and show off your footie skills in our pop-up football pen. And as if that’s not enough, we’ll also have a free bouncy castle, free face painting, storytelling sessions and a road safety truck to explore!”
