Whether you are regular confident free-wheeling road/mountain bikers, relying on electric motors, still on your balance bike or just thinking of starting from scratch, we want to meet you.

Dunblane by Cycle is a community group created in 2017 that is affiliated to Cycling UK  after emerging from the success of Discover Dunblane's participation in European Mobility Week in September 2016. 

Our aim is to be a "pedalling Dunblaners' forum" that promotes and supports cycling as a practical and safe means of everyday transport for all ages within, to and from the town.

We held a launch event in May 2017 in the Braeport Centre when we invited all committed or aspirant cyclists to drop-in to:

  • learn more about our plans for the year
  • get advice on how to prepare your bike for summer
  • sample some of Dunblane's cycle ways
  • have some family fun
