Cycle Fintry

CycleFintry

Background 

The Cycle Fintry Bikes where awarded to the Fintry community on behalf of Cycle
Scotland Communities Scheme. The availability of quality bikes in Fintry will mean
access to a healthy and fun mode of transport which will ultimately help to
reduce Fintry’s carbon footprint. This project also includes a number of other
initiatives which are aimed at encouraging individuals to get out and get
cycling – so keep an eye out for fun cycling activities.

What could joining do for you?

Cycle Fintry is designed to work with our existing FEET car club service. It means that both bikes and cars can be used simultaneously. This allows for the opportunity of driving to local beauty spots and making use of the bikes while there. Alternatively you could become a member solely to access the bikes within our bike bank.

Our members even have access to a range of safety equipment. We encourage use of helmets and safety equipment for every use. Our easy online booking system means the bikes can be booked at a moment’s notice whenever you require. Our members also have full access to our electric bikes.
