Two Bikeplus schemes in Scotland are inviting the public to take part in a socially inclusive project on the 13 April and a Go e-bike information event on the 23 April.
Bikeplus and South East of Scotland Transport Partnership will host the Go e-bike programme at Victoria Quay, Leith. The scheme aims to improve accessibility, air quality and reduce carbon emissions. It will highlight different e-bikes in various contexts including St. Andrews, Clear Buckhaven, West Lothian Bike Library and an employer e-Bike pool.
The socially inclusive project will take place at the Bike for Good community hub on Victoria Road in Govanhill. It will highlight an expanded city-wide scheme which has tackled cycling inequalities by providing low-cost access to bikes and reducing barriers for first time riders.
Bikes for All is working in deprived neighbourhoods and focuses on encouraging women and people from ethnic minorities to cycle through confidence boosting road skill sessions and wider community engagement.
