Forum http://falkirkbc.forumotion.net/login

The forum is provided by the Falkirk Bicycle Club to our members. This is structured forum to interact with each other. Please make sure your UserId allows others members to recognise you, and add your full name to the “humor” field in your profile. If you have any questions or suggestions then please post them up. It is really easy.

Facebook Public Pagehttps://www.facebook.com/FalkirkBicycleClub/

The club owns a public Facebook page which is used to share information with members and friends of Falkirk Bicycle Club. This page allows people from other organisations or clubs (e.g. Scottish Cycling or Glasgow Wheelers) to be aware of our events. Simply “like” this page and turn on notifications so that you can keep informed of any updates to events such as Thursday night training or race information.

Facebook Private Grouphttps://www.facebook.com/groups/FalkirkBCMembers/

“Falkirk BC Members” is a closed Facebook group. This means that only people on Facebook who are members of the Club and this group can see or post messages. Access is restricted to the current membership list and you can join by requesting to join this group. This is an easier way to post photos and share points of interest across the wide range of social media. We also encourage people to post items for sale for the benefit of club members. Remember that not every FBC member has a Facebook account so please bear this in mind.

Strava http://www.strava.com/clubs/falkirk-bicycle-club

We have a club Strava page where you can share the details of any rides automatically, simply by requesting to join the group. The members are restricted to the current membership list. This is a fun way to add a competitive edge to your riding by setting Personal Records (PR), King and Queen of the Mountains (KOM, QOM) and trying to get to the top of the leader boards each week. The aim is to motivate our riders to get out there as often as possible.

Twitter @FalkirkBikeClub https://twitter.com/falkirkbikeclub

We have a Twitter feed, although we have only just started to use this format. Anyone on Twitter can follow this feed. Therefore it is not restricted to FBC membership in any way.
