A project that aims to give people the confidence to cycle more and cycle further by encouraging local businesses and attractions to welcome cyclists.
The scheme pledge involves having secure cycle parking, bike pumps, local maps and puncture repair kits available. Hopefully it will also inspire touring cyclists on the N76 or John Muir Way to drop in to Dunbar as they know they will get a warm and sympathetic welcome.
Inspiration came from parents at Dunbar Primary School who installed a track pump at the door to the building, available for public use. Other locations now include • Dunbar Train Station • Bleachingfield Community Centre.
Local businesses can take the pledge and become a Cycle Friendly Stop. We will provide them with a Cycle Friendly starter pack (subject to demand). The starter pack will help cyclists keep their bike on the go whilst out and about and will be available to passing cycle tourists during business hours. We will also provide a bicycle lock for customers to use during their visit. A Cycle Friendly Stop should strive to provide safe cycle parking. Grants for businesses are available through Cycling Scotland for cycle parking according to their stipulations.
