The Carbon Clyde team are delighted to be working in partnership with ScotRail, Tesco Craigmarloch and Recyke-a-bike on this upcoming event, offering a free safety check on bikes.
If you want to have your bike checked please come along to Croy Station on Friday 7th October between 7.30 and 10am or Tesco Craigmarnoch between 10.30 and 1.30pm.
Project Manager, Karen Welsh said, “This will be our first Dr Bike event and we hope that these can continue on a monthly basis, not only at Croy Station but at other venues in Cumbernauld. The funding for our events is down to the Clyde FC Community Foundation being awarded funding through the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund.
“The Scottish Government are committed to encouraging healthier and greener travel and are investing money to motivate people out of their cars. Their aim, by 2020, is to invest in active travel and they remain committed to a shared vision of 10% of everyday journeys being made by bike. This event is that start of the Carbon Clyde Project’s own commitment to share this vision.
“We will also be delivering, in partnership with Recyke-a-bike, led rides and bike maintenance workshops in the future.”
