Bike Club 

Creating cycling opportunities for young people in Scotland. 


Bike Club in Scotland is delivered by CTC (the national cyclists’ organisation) and Youth Scotland, the network of youth clubs and groups.

Bike Club creates cycling opportunities for young people, by providing advice and support for groups working with young people aged between 10 and 20.Over the past two years it has engaged over 5,000 young people in cycling activities in Scotland.
