We are looking for 50 Big Bike Revival centres across Scotland to run a range of engaging activities, events and rides during September and October – we have small grants (£2000) to help deliver:
– Opportunities to get bikes fixed, and people taught how to maintain them
– Events that showcase a range of bikes that meet different needs
– Cycle training to help people feel more confident to cycle on the road
– Led rides that help people find and use their local cycle paths and low traffic routes
The Big Bike Revival in Scotland is a call to action to help achieve the Scottish Government vision of 10% of journeys by bike by 2020. It aims to get more people cycling, which is the mission that sits at the core of Cycling UK, its members and the network of sustainable cycling groups that it supports.
