The two Scottish Cycling athletes are now official ambassadors for the project; last week they joined us at the Indigo nursery in Castlemilk, south Glasgow, to meet children involved in the training programme and to launch the new 2015 Dream Fund award. They also met representatives from two of the pilot organisations that Play on Pedals is working with – Greg Cann, Sports Legacy Coordinator for North Glasgow Homes and John Harkins, NHS Health Improvement Team in the south of the city.

Aileen said, “Projects such as Play on Pedals play a vital role in the lasting legacy of the Commonwealth and Olympic Games”, while James added, “Play on Pedals is ensuring that children across Glasgow are learning a skill that will stay with them for life, allowing the next generation to enjoy the freedom, fun and adventure that cycling provides.”
