Cycling in Stirling

No ratings yet. Log in to rate.

Cycling is a great way of getting round to and from campus and around town - it's often quicker than waiting for the bus, helps you get some exercise (it adds up!) and keeps money in your bank that can be spent on better things! It's also great for the environment, with every 10 miles of cycling saving approximately a litre of petrol or diesel compared to using a car.

Own a bike?

Your Students' Union has been working closely with the University to support active travel. Over 2016/2017 the University created 60 new bike spaces across campus. We are also pleased to annouce that the University is also continueing the very popular Recyke-A-Bike's 'Dr Bike' sessions, which help keep your bike up to scratch with minor tunings and provide further recommendations - all free of charge! Dr Bike sessions run fortnightly in the Atrium and will start in September 2017. You can also purchase affordable, refurbished bikes from Recyke-A-Bike.

Fancy a discount?

We've worked with local businesses to offer three new discounts for students - just drop by the stores with your student ID card and get a great offer!

No bike? Low cost bike rental is available on and off campus.

The University subscribes to Nextbike, a bike rental scheme that has available bikes for you across campus and town. This means that you can rent a bike for free for the first hour! Simply take out a bike from one of the Nextbike stations on campus, ride into town and lock the bike at another Nextbike station. So catching a train does not mean waiting around and paying extra for a bus! You can even get free access when travelling abroad - heading to Munich's Oktoberfest? You're covered!

To access the scheme you'll need to sign up to Nextbike. Further details can be found here.

There is also Forthbike electric bike scheme (you can find out more info here). If you sign up before 16th February 2020, you can get a free month trial. To get your discount code, please contact Campus Cycling Officer, Heather Davis here.
