2020 has seen a boom in cycling, with a 77% increase during the lockdown leading to positive behavioural and environmental changes. As bike share is accessible, affordable and flexible it can play an increasingly important role in Scotland’s green recovery. But how can we optimise bike share to improve the health of the nation, boost the environment and serve Scotland’s communities?

You are invited to our second webinar in the Scotland Co-mobility series ‘Pedalling a Green Recovery’ where we will be exploring how we can unlock the potential of bike share in Scotland and giving a snap shot of the different types of schemes providing healthy, affordable and low carbon forms of travel in communities across the country.

    Cllr Richardson is Glasgow City Council’s Convener for Sustainability and Carbon Reduction. Cllr Richardson will be discussing the city’s free bike share initiative and talking about the vision to transform Glasgow’s cycling and walking networks.
