Creating cycling opportunities for young people in Scotland.
Bike Club Scotland is a partnership project run by Youth Scotland, the national network of youth clubs and groups, and the CTC, the national cycling charity.
Bike Club Scotland has a track record of supporting young people to become more active, develop leadership skills and enable the creation of sustainable cycling projects.

More about Bike Club
Since 2010 Bike Club has worked with over 90 organisations and 6,500 young people across Edinburgh, the Lothians, Falkirk, Fife and Glasgow. The focus is on working with those that are from backgrounds and communities that aren’t traditionally engaged in cycling – ethnic minority communities, young people with disabilities, girls and young women and young people from disadvantaged areas.
In order to achieve the greatest outcomes for young people, Bike Club is focusing its work on mentoring older ‘young people’, who will, in turn, reach out and support other, younger, young people.
Bike Club supports young leaders aged 16 to 24, either already in a youth club or community organisation, or looking to use their new skills to set up a cycling group or project in their local area, at college or in their community. Young leaders then provide cycling activities for and with the group people in their community or group, reaching out to many more young people, and their families through the programme.
Where is Bike Club active?
Bike Club is currently running in Glasgow, and we hope to establish it in Falkirk, Fife, Stirling and Clackmannanshire soon.
