Our aims


We aim to establish cycling as an accessible and practical travel option for people across Scotland.

From tackling the climate emergency to helping people stay physically and mentally healthy, bikes have an important role to play in supporting our environment, our economy, our society and our health.

Our vision

A sustainable, inclusive and healthy Scotland where anyone, anywhere can enjoy all the benefits of cycling.
