Peter's Story: I got back into cycling after a heart attack

After my heart attack, I realised that I needed to up my exercise levels and thought that taking up cycling again after a long break might be part of the plan.

I'd read about Electric Bikes but had never tried one so was delighted to discover that the Stirling Active Travel Hub offered free trials of different Electric Bikes as part of their regular meanders - short cycle rides lead by experienced cyclists.

 The meanders are great fun and very sociable occasions where you can meet other would-be cyclists and regain a bit of confidence while discovering new routes through the town that avoid main roads.

I've now bought my own eBike and go out on my own as well as taking part in many of the meanders in Stirling and Callander.
