We Walk, We Cycle, We Vote campaign and Go Bike are organising a FREE training day in Glasgow on Saturday 3 March at The Whisky Bond, 2 Dawson Road, Glasgow, G4 9SS.

The training day is an opportunity for anyone who wants to campaign for cycling, walking and more liveable towns and cities to meet, share ideas and learn. It should offer something for everyone from those just starting out to experienced campaigners.

The elections may be over for a while, but #walkcyclevote continues! With the Scottish Government ‘Programme for Government’ announcement in September doubling the active travel budget it has never been more important to work together to ensure that investment pays off.

For some of us, that means carrying off the balancing of supporting new (and possibly controversial) initiatives from the powers that be – while still continuing to hold them to account. For others, it means making sure our local areas don’t miss out or get left behind in the dash for active travel money. Either way, campaigners old and new will need new skills and new ideas as we move into a potentially exciting future.

For more information check out the Eventbrite page or the Facebook event page.

Taking you from off-road to on-track, Scottish Cycling, Running and Outdoor Pursuits Show (SCROPS) offers an experience that will bring you the heart of cycling, running & outdoor pursuits all under one roof at the SECC Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 March 2018.

RaffleWinnerWe are delighted to announce that Ben Harris won the youth bike in our recent De’ils On Wheels bike raffle. We also threw in a goodie bag with lights, a lock and some hi-viz snapbands!

Ben is a regular at the DRC Youth Project and having a bike means Ben will be able to cycle to and from the Youth Project held at Heart of Scotstoun community centre. Ben was one of seven Youth Project members who recently took part in a fundraising initiative where the boys ran 5km and raised £150 for the centre.

Thanks to everyone who supported our bike workshop by buying raffle tickets in the run-up to Christmas. A huge thanks to The Bike Chain for their generosity in donating this brand new bike.
