Cycling Scotland is the nation’s cycling organisation. Working with others, they help create and deliver opportunities so anyone anywhere in Scotland can cycle easily and safely.
There are so many reasons to start cycling. You will beat the traffic on your daily commute, reduce the harmful emissions into the atmosphere (if you would usually drive) and get your cardio in for the week!
However, despite all the positives, you don't have to sit a 'driving test' new cyclists can often feel under prepared without enough knowledge to get on the roads with their bike.

Through Cycling Scotlands 'Adult Cycling Essential Cycling Skills' cyclists can increase their confidence on their bike and start enjoying all the benefits that cycling offers, including freedom to explore, affordable travel and the chance to meet new friends - it's a win, win situation!
Don't worry if you don't have a bike and are just wanting to test it out before buying your own, during the Essential Cycling Skills pilot, Cycling Scotland will provide access to bikes and equipment.
The programme will be using local bike shops, testing earlier market research by Cycling Scotland that identified cycle stores as an outlet for delivering training.
The Cycling Skills course is usually £20, but will be available throughout March to June, free of charge.
