There are countless reasons to consider cycling as a sustainable, accessible, and healthy way to commute to work. Cycling offers a range of benefits spanning health and wellbeing, productivity, and the environment.
How we can help you to start commuting
The average commute is only 8km, but less than 7% of employed people in Glasgow currently cycle as their main mode of transport. Our Active Travel services were developed to encourage people to cycle for short journeys to reduce the environmental impact of private transport.
We provide cycle lessons, a bike buddy and route planning service for new commuters, and city orientation-led rides.
Our cycling instructors would love to support you to learn to ride or build confidence cycling on the road. You might not have access to a bike, or may feel intimidated by the prospect of cycling on the roads of Glasgow – that’s okay, we can support you to access a bike, build confidence and find quieter routes.
