Spokes factsheet on family cycle-commuting

Spokes has a new fact-sheet on fam­ily cycle-com­mut­ing, now avail­able online.  This provides par­ents, par­tic­u­larly of young chil­dren, with ideas on how to use bikes for whole-fam­ily every-day trans­port, with real-life case-stud­ies to provide added inspir­a­tion.  A prac­tic­al, eco­nom­ic and enjoy­able solu­tion to every-day work/nursery/school travel!

You can view the fact-sheet here.

More inform­a­tion on Spokes’s cur­rent work around Family Cycle-Commuting, updates to the fact-sheet etc. avail­able here.

Spokes and The Bike Station are launch­ing their ‘Weans on Wheels’ pro­ject this spring / sum­mer (grant-fun­ded by Cycling Scotland).  The Bike Station will be deliv­er­ing prac­tic­al cyc­ling sup­port aimed spe­cific­ally at par­ents need­ing to trans­port young chil­dren, through equip­ment demon­stra­tions at nurs­er­ies and schools across Edinburgh, ‘drop-in’ train­ing ses­sions and hands-on whole-fam­ily ‘have-go’ ses­sions.  If you have con­tacts at a nurs­ery or school (esp South Edinburgh) that might be inter­ested, do con­tact Katherine Ivory at Spokes (katherine@tusks.org.uk) or Ruairidh MacGlone at the Bike Station (info@thebikestation.org.uk).

Also, if you work for a com­pany registered with the Bike Station’s Better Way to Work pro­ject and you’d like to try out some of the dif­fer­ent fam­ily-cyc­ling options, the Bike Station might be able to loan you some equip­ment (Burley child trail­ers, child seats and tag-alongs, as well as adult bikes).

Happy cyc­ling!
