CTC Scotland Commitee 2013-14

When Dr Chris Oliver was head-hunted to be the new chairman of CTC Scotland in 2011, it was his remit to reinvigorate and refresh the Scottish Committee. This has certainly been achieved.

At the gathering, Gordon Seabright CTC national CEO gave a inspiring workshop on where CTC is going, and John Lauder, National Director for Sustrans Scotland, outlined their developments.

Last week marked the 4th anniversary of the death of Anne Mustoe, ex-headmistress and intrepid cycle traveller. Her travels by bike started in 1987, when she embarked on a round-the-world trip. She wasn't slim or sporty, and couldn't fix a puncture.

Teenagers become trainers

Bike Club Scotland has developed a Package for 14-16yr olds to introduce them to the world of cycle leadership. 117 new leaders are now working with their club, group or school to help develop cycling as an activity for more young people to access.

There is no need for me to persuade most young people of the benefits of cycling. They are not interested in hearing the eco advantages – both pocket and emission, nor the difference it can make for congestion, long term health or the social impact. What it means to children and young people is fun and freedom!
