Cycling Infrastructure in
Funded by Cycling Scotland
With funding from Cycling Scotland LEG is improving the cycling infrastructure in Glen Nevis and promoting the use of electric bikes in Lochaber and Glen Nevis, as an alternative to cars and non-assisted biking, to enable everyone to enjoy the outdoors, get active, improve their health, and reduce car emissions.
The Glen Nevis project is providing desperately needed cycling infrastructure in Glen Nevis, in the form of a bike shelter and bike racks, to encourage cycling in the Glen. The first bike rack was installed in February 2020 in the Steall Falls car park. Two more bikes racks are soon to be installed in Braveheart and the North Face car parks, and a bike shelter will be installed in the Lower Falls car park later this year.
In March, DMD Construction started building our new Bike Kitchen shed. This is now on hold, for obvious reasons, but we look forward to seeing it completed, and will be holding a Bike Kitchen shed opening event later this year. We will be running guided E bike rides in Glen Nevis and E bike maintenance workshops – more details coming soon.
As the climate and ecological crisis deepens we need to significantly reduce our carbon emissions, and this project along with the new summer Glen Nevis bus service, now starting in 2021, will make it easier to hop on your bike or get on the bus, instead of getting in your car.
