Active Travel - Cycling

Whether thinking about cycling to work, school, or leisure, getting around Glasgow by bike is easy and fun.

It's good for your health and cycling will improve your fitness, help you maintain a healthy weight, lower your risk of a heart disease and help reduce stress.

Cycling is a practical way of getting around.

Even a slow paced cycle trip has an average speed of 10 mph, that's a 2 mile journey in about 12 minutes. Cycling is easy to include in shorter journeys so rather than driving, why not leave the car at home, and cycle to your local train station and get the train?

Most people live within 5 miles of their place of work. That's 30 minutes by bike without having to worry about traffic jams, paying for parking, or fuel costs. By cycling you also reduce your impact on the environment too as cycling is pollution free.
