Register for the Cycling Scotland Conference 2024

Join us in Glasgow on Tuesday 8 October 2024 for the Cycling Scotland Annual Conference.

You can expect inspiring speakers, a cross-party panel discussion, breakout sessions and workshops, led walks exploring the city’s new active travel infrastructure and lots of opportunities to network with delegates.


Since we last held the national cycling Conference in Glasgow in 2017, the city has undertaken an ambitious programme to support active travel as the first choice for everyday journeys. From the Avenues Programme to the South City Way, Connecting Woodside to the North East Active Travel Routes, new protected cycle lanes and projects across the city are making it easier and safer for more people to cycle in Glasgow.


Our confirmed keynote speakers:

  • Deborah Paton, Head of Transport Planning and Delivery at Glasgow City Council 
  • Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Fiona Hyslop MSP
  • Kate Cairns, road safety campaigner
  • Cross-party panel on the priorities for everyday cycling: Councillor Angus Millar, Mark Ruskell MSP, Graham Simpson MSP, Councillor Sanne Dijkstra-Downie, Scottish Labour representative TBC

Who should attend

The Conference brings together organisations that support more people in Scotland to cycle for everyday journeys, to help us share learning, connect and celebrate progress.

Each year, around 250 delegates attend the conference including: decision-makers within local authorities and Regional Transport Partnerships, active travel organisations, Scottish Government, private and third sector organisations, campaign groups and many others involved in supporting more people to cycle for everyday journeys.
