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!
