Travelling to the Games
We encourage all of our visitors to use active travel (walking and cycling) to the Games if possible. You can make use of the Nextbike bike share scheme, through which you can rent a bike at one of the Nextbike stations in Stirling or Bridge of Allan and return it to a station at the end of the day. Throughout the day, you are able to lock the bike using a combination key and leave it in a safe place.
You can sign up by downloading the Nextbike app, by calling customer service on 020 8166 985 or by creating an account on the Nextbike website.
There are Nextbike stations at Stirling Train Station, Bridge of Allan Community Centre and the Bridge of Allan Train Station.
