Glasgow Wood Recycling, a thriving social enterprise based in Whiteinch, has recently achieved the nationally recognised Cycle Friendly Employer Award by demonstrating a clear commitment to increasing cycling for staff, volunteers and trainees. Achieving the award was made possible with funding from the Cycle Friendly Employer Development Fund.

Glasgow Wood Recycling was assessed against a range of criteria – they have a cycling champion, they have improved their cycling facilities including installing a new cycle shelter (made from recycled wood!), bought tools and a bike stand, bought a pool bike and have undertaken bike maintenance training. All clearly demonstrating that they fully deserved this Award.

Glasgow Wood Recycling is the 153rd workplace in Glasgow to achieve the award and they join over 525 Cycle Friendly Employers throughout Scotland. In addition, Glasgow Wood Recycling entered a team into the recent Glasgow and Clyde Cycle Challenge which took place throughout May. The team finished second overall cycling over 4000kms and one of the GWR team finished third in the individual standings, cycling nearly 1200km!
