As part of our Low Carbon Lochaber project we encourage Active Travel and low carbon transport in Lochaber.
Our new Bike Library has electric 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.
- The Bike Kitchen is now recruiting for a bike mechanic. The closing date for applications is 21st July. More information about the position and application documents here.
Keep an eye on the Events Page and come along to our next series of evening bike repair classes which we hope to start again later this year. We will also be running E bike repair workshops and guided E bike rides later this year, and the Adopt A Bike scheme will soon be starting up again – watch this space!
