The European Cycling Challenge 2017 is the biggest cycling event across Europe. The idea is to encourage people to use their bikes as much as possible. It’s about everyday cycling for everyone.

ALL cycling is permitted with the exception of sporting and training events. Whether you are cycling all the way to work, to the station, going to the shops or just enjoying being out on your bike, we want you to take part and record your routes to help improve cycling across the Clyde Valley.

Last year, 52 cities, including Glasgow, joined the Challenge. Over 46,000 people cycled four million kilometres (4,000,000 km) during the month of May. Glasgow finished a respectable 18th with 72,000km recorded with the Glasgow boundary but recorded over 127,750 km in total.

Once again the We Go Pedal team will be pedalling for victory. Last year the We Go Pedal team, which was part of Team Glasgow, had 11 members and thanks to our combined efforts we cycled a total of 1268 kms and we came 14th out of all 74 sub-teams that made up Team Glasgow! So we need more people to sign up to the team!

To join Team We Go Pedal you need to:

  • Download the naviki app
  • Go to Settings > Contests > ECC2017
  • Click the button “I’m Participating” to opt in
  • Click on My Teams, Select “Glasgow City Region”
  • Click on My Teams, Select “Other”, scroll down to “We Go Pedal”

walkcyclevoteIn the run up to the Scottish Local Government elections which will be held on Thursday 4 May we are once again supporting the We Walk, We Cycle, We Vote campaign.

We Walk, We Cycle We Vote is a collaborative partnership of over 50 walking and cycling organisations across Scotland which have come together to put active travel on the agenda for the Scottish Local Government elections, which offers the chance to transform Scotland into a healthier, wealthier, happier country.

The campaign is asking all candidates if they will support the following three asks:

  • Investment: Provide sustained, long term investment in both cycling and walking, reaching 10% of the transport budget
  • Infrastructure: Build and maintain dedicated cycling infrastructure suitable for people of all ages and abilities
  • Local action: To solve the main local barriers to active travel, as identified by residents and businesses

Pedal on Parliament dates have been set for 2017 and this year, with the local elections looming, Pedal on Parliament (PoP) will be held in three cities in Scotland. On Saturday 22 April there will be rides in Edinburgh and Aberdeen, and on Sunday 23 April there will be a ride in Glasgow.

Over the past year there has been some serious backlash against cycling projects across Scotland. With bike lanes removed in Ayr and Perth, the Bears Way project extension thwarted, and even Edinburgh having a bit of a wobble over its East-West route, it’s clear that it’s not just our national politicians that need but persuaded, but also our local councillors.

pop_success2The Play On Pedals project recently reached the end of their People’s Postcode Lottery funding and we were invited along to help them celebrate! Play On Pedals has been hugely successful and exceeded their target of engaging with 7,000 preschool children – final numbers were 7,148!!

As a local Super Hero organisation we have been supporting the Play On Pedals programme for over 2 years now and have supported local nurseries deliver Play On pedals, held a bike amnesty as well as delivering sessions at various community events and at Scotstoun Leisure Centre.

Play On Pedals will continue to deliver events (there are currently sessions taking place at Scotstoun Leisure Centre) and preschool cycling opportunities in Glasgow until the end of May. There are plans to continue beyond May as part of the new Glasgow Community Cycle Network.

The project partners would like to give a huge thanks to all the groups who, along with all the early years establishments, have made Play on Pedals so successful…
