Our first Making Cycling Mainstream (MCM) courses of 2014 are the popular planning and designing courses for cyclists, taking place on the 29th April and 20th May (9.30 till 15:00) at the Cycling Scotland office in Glasgow. These cover an in depth review of Cycling by Design, Cycle Infrastructure being installed across the UK and an onsite visit in the afternoon to design a local network.
As the National Agency for promoting cycling in Scotland, Cycling Scotland has over a decade of experience in managing, coordinating and delivering successful cycling projects. We engage with a wide range of organisations including all 32 local authorities on education, behaviour change, communications and infrastructure projects. Our Making Cycling Mainstream (MCM) modules have been running for over six years, and are continually developed to take account of new research and emerging best practice. In each MCM module, candidates are encouraged to consider the practical application of all learning outcomes associated with the module
Cycling Scotland believe that it is essential for transport professionals to ensure active travel and cycling are at the heart of all projects and initiatives, in order to make sure that they are effective and beneficial. This is only achievable by ensuring that decision makers not only have access to the latest policy, but also the knowledge and learning to apply it. Our MCM modules bring together our own expertise and the experiences of other industry professionals.
