Pedal on! ng homes secures funding for cycling activities in 2024.

Pedal power is back for 2024! We're pleased to share that ng homes has received additional funding to support our Active Travel and cycling projects across North Glasgow in 2024.

The funding, from Go Cycle, will support our Active Travel initiative launched last year (2023), with events held previously ranging from maintenance drop-in sessions to essential skills, community rides and more.

One of the key initiatives that will be supported by the funding is the Early Years 'Learn to Cycle' and 'Bike Confidence' programme, teaching cycling skills, building confidence, and instilling a love of cycling in young children. This programme, supported by Glasgow Area Partnership, will run Sundays 12noon-1pm at Springburn Sports Centre until the end of March.

Our Active Hub (Eccles Street, G22 6BJ) also returns Tuesday afternoons starting 23 January 2024. ng homes will also be hosting Dr Bike (bicycle maintenance) sessions on Tuesday 13 February and Tuesday 12 March in the local community. These sessions are always popular and booking is recommended - why not come along for some advice and light maintenance for your bicycle, just in time to get them ready for getting out and about as spring returns. More information will be shared on our website and social media in advance of the events.

Greg Cann, Project Manager at ng homes, stated “Our goal is to get more people on bikes and ensure that everyone has the opportunity and the confidence to enjoy cycling whether it is for fun, exercise or as a way of getting about the community. We're delighted to have this funding and to be able to continue to offer these events again in 2024 and look forward to sharing the benefits of cycling as it's a fantastic way to support both physical and mental wellbeing."
