Cycling Scotland is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. We receive funding from Transport Scotland to bring cycling out from the fringes of everyday life and into the mainstream. We aim to establish cycling as an acceptable, attractive and practical lifestyle option.
Our Vision and Goals
Our vision is for Scotland to be a nation of cyclists
Where people of all ages and abilities, from all walks of life, cycle more often.
Enjoying better access to Scotland’s towns, cities , villages and the outdoors.
A nation of cycling-friendly communities and green spaces, where people feel safe on their bikes, and think of cycling as the best way to get around; to school or work, to college or the shops.
Where the streets are bustling with people on bikes, easing congestion, reducing carbon emissions, and helping create a happier, healthier population.
Let everyone know why cycling is healthier, greener, smarter and fairer.
Help create better, greener public spaces where people of all ages and abilities can cycle safely.
Show that cycling is a great way to get around, giving people from all walks of life better access in Scotland’s towns, cities and to the outdoors
Show that cycling is a safe, effective and economical transport option that’s better for the people of Scotland, and for their environment
Celebrate and promote that there is a type of cycling for everyone; leisure, travel, tourism, sport and play.
We are also fully committed to playing a central role in assisting the Scottish Government and its partners and stakeholders to achieve the vision set out in the Cycling Action Plan for Scotland
“By 2020, 10% of all journeys taken in Scotland will be by bike.”
As a mainly publicly funded organisation we aim to provide the best possible value for money in everything we do. Our resources are focussed on a range of strategic priorities that evolve to reflect the Scottish Government’s priorities as circumstances change.
