On the 30th and 31st October 2017, 200 delegates met at the Technology and Innovation Centre at the University of Strathclyde for the Cycling Scotland Conference. As part of the conference in Glasgow, Cycling Scotland – the nation’s cycling organisation – offered delegates the opportunity to take part in one of four study cycle tours around the city, in addition to a walking tour in nearby Paisley.
The aim was to embed active travel as part of the conference and beyond, and to highlight some of the ways that Glasgow is helping its residents and visitors to travel actively, so anyone anywhere in Scotland can cycle easily and safely. Delegates had the opportunity to learn about future infrastructure plans to make traveling by bike in Glasgow easier and safer.
Jennifer Fingland, Cycling Scotland Policy Officer said: “We hope that by including these study tours in our conference programme, delegates will take their learning and apply it locally, nationally and internationally.”
