New MTB trails at Beecraigs Country Park

Beecraigs is a small country park with big potential. Mountain bikers have been using the park for many years, so it was inevitable that a time would come when some upgrades and maintenance to the existing network of trails would be required - so they called in CTC's Ian Warby.

Located in Scotland’s central belt between Edinburgh and Glasgow,  Beecraigs is a small country park with big potential. The park has recently been awarded some funding from the Criminal Justice Service, this money will help improve the facilities and offer an enhanced experience for all park visitors.

Deans Community High School pupils meet Nigel Mansell

Pupils at Deans Community High School met the former Formula 1 star on 14 June but this time he was on two wheels instead of four. Nigel cycled through Livingston as part of a 1300 mile charity cycle ride from John O'Groats to Paris over 12 days, raising funds for Youth Charity UK Youth.

On his arrival at the school Nigel was greeted by pupils, parents and staff all keen to find out how his cycle through Scotland over the last three days had been. Amazingly his time north of the border was spent mostly cycling in the sunshine.

Three hundred S1 pupils at Larbert High School tried out different cycling activities over three days to encourage more pupils to take up cycling and get involved in cycling activities. They also organised their first ever girls only mountain bike trip.

S1 pupils went cycling crazy at Larbert High School this term when they took part in this year’s Cycle road shows.

Although slightly cold, the days stayed dry and pupils had the chance to try out the school's assault course, riding Tandem bikes and tackling hills on mountain bikes. PC Imrie security stamped bikes that pupils brought along on the day and local bike recycling project Recyke-a-bike came along to teach pupils how to fix their bikes. All the pupils are to be congratulated on their effort and enthusiasm.
