Active Travel & Low Carbon Transport
As part of our Low Carbon Lochaber project we encourage Active Travel and low carbon transport in Lochaber.
In our previous CCF project Go Grow and Glow, we restored 66 bikes that were donated to us, and they were adopted out to new owners all over Lochaber. The scheme is coming to an end, but we are starting up a Bike Library with electric bikes and conventional bikes. The bikes are available to borrow free of charge for a few hours or a few weeks, so get in touch and get on a bike. We are also building a Bike Tool Library, with a wide range of bike tools available to borrow so you can keep your bike in good condition. The Bike Tool Library will be housed in our soon to be finished Bike Kitchen shed, funded by Cycling Scotland.
The first of our E bikes is now available to borrow – a Trek Powerfly 4 electric bike funded by the Energy Savings Trust. E bikes are great for daily commuting and short trips around town, so get in touch and try out an E bike.
We will be running guided E Bike rides in 2020 so you can try out an E bike – watch this space!
The 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 next series of four Wednesday evening bike repair classes starting on 15th April 2020 (postponed). We will also be running E bike repair workshops later this year.
On Saturday 17th August 2019 we held our second Electric Vehicle Road Show, with all sorts of information, advice and experience available to help you learn about electric cars.
