Bike Share

Forth Environment Link and the Active Travel Hub are playing an important role in bringing bike share to both Falkirk and the wider Forth Valley. Bike Share is a service in which bicycles are made available for shared use to individuals on a short term basis.

In June 2019, Forth Environment Link launched Forth Bike, Scotland’s largest electric bike hire scheme. We are working with bike share provider Bewegen, to deliver the UK’s first cross regional partnership electric bike share project, supported by Transport Scotland, SEStran, NHS Forth Valley, Clackmannanshire Council, Stirling Council and Falkirk Council.

The 120 e-bike project connects three Council areas: Stirling, Falkirk and Clackmannanshire.

The scheme:

There are currently 6 docking stations: Falkirk Wheel, Helix: Home of the Kelpies, Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Stirling Health and Care Village, Stirling University, Stirling Train Station (virtual docking station).

Five more stations will be live soon.
 
The bikes:

All 120 of the bikes in our scheme are Pedelec. The gearing and the level of assistance the battery gives a cyclist is entirely is entirely automatic (the computer figures it out all by itself)... so all you need to do is to pedal.
