WeGoPedal_logo_webWe are delighted that in partnership with LINKES Bike Club and the Whiteinch Bike Club we have secured funding from Cycling Scotland’s Cycle Friendly and Sustainable Communities Fund (CFSCF) to launch our West Glasgow Pedallers We Go Pedal! project.

UPDATEhere you can read all our blog posts related to the We Go Pedal project

The purpose of the CFSCF is to support groups to encourage cycling in their community and to deliver a sustainable cycling project. The West Glasgow Pedallers We Go Pedal! project will:

  • encourage people of all ages and abilities living in west Glasgow (including Yoker, Scotstoun, Whiteinch and Knightswood) to start cycling or cycle more in their community
  • promote cycling as an active, alternative and complimentary means of travel to existing means of travel
  • provide learning and development opportunities for people in west Glasgow including improving cycling skills, cycle maintenance skills, health and wellbeing and confidence

We set up a short survey to find out whether people cycle and if so how often – many thanks to everyone that took the time to complete the survey – we had 128 responses which was fantastic and the information gathered will help inform how we deliver the project!

To find out more about the project please read on below or contact the DRCET office! Happy Cycling!
