Rory MacColl, Active Travel Hub Officer based in Ayr, launched National Bike Week with colleagues from the Road Safety team and Police Scotland.
During the week Rory will be encouraging commuters to pledge to give up one or two of their normal journeys and try cycling instead.
Rory said: “Cycling is now recognised as being a great way to encourage a longer and healthier life. It also has the benefit of making Ayrshire a better place to live by reducing carbon emissions and helping to improve air quality – that’s got to be great for you and great for future generations.”
It is very simple to take part in Bike Week. Make a pledge to change a couple of journeys you would normally take by car and get on your bike instead. Pledges can be made here
The Active Travel Hub would also like to know about your pledges and there are prizes available to cyclists who take part through the Facebook page – Active Travel Hub Ayr.
