Scheme seeks to instill life-long cycling habit
Every four year old in Glasgow is being taught to ride a bike as part of a project launched earlier this year to encourage them to cycle for the rest of their lives.
The Play on Pedals scheme is claimed to be a UK-first in getting every Glasgow child in the saddle before they start school. If successful, it will be repeated across Scotland.
Through the scheme 7,500 four-year-olds will receive cycle training at nurseries and other venues over the next two years.
The scheme is being jointly run by CTC, Cycling Scotland, Play Scotland and Glasgow Bike Station (which recycles bikes) and has been funded by a £230,000 contribution from the People’s Postcode Trust’s Dream Fund.
