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 63 bikes that were donated to us, and they were adopted out to new owners all over Lochaber. The Adopt A Bike scheme has come to an end, but we are starting up a Bike Library with electric bikes and conventional bikes which can be borrowed free of charge for a few hours or a few weeks. We now have four bikes available to borrow – three electric bikes (Trek Powerfly 4 E bike, Raleigh Motus, Trek verve) and a Raleigh Pioneer low-step bike (non-assisted). Bikes are great for daily commuting and short trips around town, 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 as part of our project to improve Cycling Infrastructure in Glen Nevis.
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 be running E bike repair workshops and guided E bike rides later this year – watch this space!
