Welcome to Falkirk Wheelers

Who are we?

Falkirk Wheelers is Scotland's only group dedicated to all things wheeled. We're fans of roller skating, cycling, rollerblading, scooting, skateboarding and anything else human powered. If it can be done on wheels, we'll do it! We roll around Central Scotland cycle network for our outdoor sessions and hold adult roller skating sessions indoors too.

How long have we been around?

We were officially founded in January 2013 by some friends with common interests, mainly, in skating and cycling and things have gone from strength to strength since. We are run by a small group of regulars who dedicate their free time to keep things rolling for everyone.

Where do you meet?

During July and August we meet up on Friday evenings at Falkirk Stadium. All human powered wheels are welcome and all ages welcome although children must be acompanied by a relative or guardian who is over 18. The rest of the year we hold adult indoor rollerskating sessions in Denny Sports Centre.

Do you offer skating lessons?

We can provide one to one or small group lessons around Falkirk. If you're interested in rollerblading or roller skating lessons whether you're a complete beginner or more experienced skater looking to improve particular skills then feel free to contact us with your requirements and we'll put you in touch with a qualified BRSF or ICP instructor.

Non-contact Roller Hockey

We play non-contact (even no wall contact) roller hockey weekly. Anyone interested in joining must have come along regularly to our Friday sessions to allow us to assess their minimum skills and ability to work as a good team player. We use a light puck which is kept low so that players can wear normal skating pads and helmets to keep the cost down without having to invest in heavy duty roller/ice hockey gear.


Social Aims

Our group are socially aware - any indoor sessions are held in community centres and halls to do what we can for our community. In addition, we've raised a lot of money for various charitable causes over the years including UNICEF, Canine Partners, Deaf Blind Scotland, the Forth Hedgehog Hospital and recently Seamab at The Great Scottish Skate 2019.

News - February 2020

Thanks to everyone who attended our recent taster sessions. What a great bunch who did brilliantly at everything we threw at them. We've no new intake tasters planned at the moment but if you're interested in getting some exercise in disguise that's way more fun than jogging or the gym then sign up to our mailing list below and you'll be first to know next time we're recruiting.
