ng homes receives funding for new cycle projects
ng homes is delighted to receive funding from Glasgow City Council's ‘Go Cycle Glasgow’ Fund to support new cycling projects planned for 2023.
Plans are coming together as part of an Active Travel initiative aiming to increase opportunities for cycling among a wide range of people within the North Glasgow (G21 and G22) communities served by ng homes.
The funding will enable plans to move forward around cycle-friendly events from maintenance drop-in sessions, essential skills and upskilling, community rides and more which are all in the mix throughout 2023.
By providing access to bikes and engagement activities, it is hoped more people will see biking as a viable, safe mode of transport for various activities.
For more information on specific events, please check the ng homes’ website and our social media channels regularly. Details will be made available prior to each event.
About ‘Go Cycle Glasgow Fund’
Glasgow City Council's ‘Go Cycle Glasgow’ Fund, administered by Glasgow Life, is one of several community activations designed to engage citizens with the 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships taking place in the city and across Scotland 3-13 August.
This new fund aims to inspire more local people to take up or return to cycling, making it an activity for life, by supporting community groups across Glasgow to create and develop accessible and sustainable cycling projects.
Priority has been given to groups working with young people, women, people with disabilities, low-income families and ethnic minorities, making it possible for more people, regardless of background or ability, to enjoy the benefits and power of the bike.
