Forth Valley gets four new e-bike stations
Written by centralfmnews on February 13, 2020
It’s hoped four new e-bike stations will boost the number of people cycling across the Forth Valley.
Forth Environment Link have announced the new hubs, in Falkirk, Stenhousemuir, Bannockburn and Tillicoultry.
There are now nine e-bike hubs across the region – including at the Kelpies, Stirling University and Forth Valley Royal Hospital.
Clara Walker, Executive Director of Forth Environment Link, said: “The addition of four more stations will widen access to the scheme, meaning more local people can take advantage of easy, affordable low carbon travel. The e-bikes last for up to 60 miles on a single charge, making them a real alternative to the car.”
Cllr Paul Garner, Environment portfolio holder at Falkirk Council said: “This is another example of our commitment to giving people low carbon alternatives to petrol and diesel cars. We have been recognised for our walking and cycling networks nationally and are keen to promote this through our investment in these bike stations. Town centres like Falkirk and Stenhousemuir will be better connected to the path network and hopefully are now better placed to draw in visitors. We take our hats off to FEL for this and are glad to support them develop the network.”
