Bikes arrive and receive new home

Our Play on Pedals bikes have now arrived and been assembled by volunteers and staff at the Glasgow Bike Station. 

This week we happily moved all of our new fleet into a fantastic free storage space at 100 Borron Street, thanks to the generosity of Scottish Canals. They now stand proudly upright in our genius recycled ‘Play on Pedals Palette Racks’.

Once we have labelled each of them individually, the coming months will see these bikes head out on loan to our first pilot Hero Organisation North Glasgow Homes through their Sport Legacy Programme and will also be off to south Glasgow for use within some of the groups who have been involved in the pilot training programme that took place this summer.

These bikes will visit thousands of children across the city over the next fifteen months, before eventually being handed over to Hero Organisations to keep for use within their local communities, by nurseries and other pre-school establishments, once the Play on Pedals project comes to an end.

If you have already expressed interest in the Play on Pedals project then expect to hear from us soon about the next steps for your group. If you have not yet been in touch with Play on Pedals but would like to find out more about our People’s Postcode Lottery funded project, please get in touch with polly.jarman@ctc.org.uk.
