Low Carbon Transport & Active Travel
The GO part of the Go, Grow and Glow Project aims to promote low carbon transport and Active Travel in Lochaber.
On Saturday 17th August we repeated our very successful 2018 Electric Vehicle Road Show, with all sorts of information, advice and experience available to help you learn about electric cars.
As part of our Adopt a Bike scheme we are restoring and repairing bikes that have been donated to us so they can be adopted by new owners and taken back onto the roads and tracks around Lochaber.
Please get in touch if you would like to Donate a Bike or Adopt a Bike – we have plenty of bikes waiting for a new home.
We now have a Trek Powerfly 4 electric bike funded by the Energy Savings Trust. The bike is available to loan to individuals and businesses for a few days, so if you would like to try an E bike get in touch! E bikes are great for daily commuting and short trips around town.
We also offer guided Electric Bike rides so you can try out an E-Bike. Our first guided E-bike ride was to the vitrified fort in Glen Nevis on 7th May. We will be running more guided E-bike rides throughout 2019 – watch this space!
The Fort William Bike Kitchen funded by Paths for All is helping to repair bikes and running bike repair workshops and classes. Keep an eye on the Events Page and come along to our series of four Thursday evening bike repair classes in September.
Our 2019 Community Bike Interns have started, so watch this space to see what they get up too.
