Further and Higher Education establishments across Scotland have received significant funding through a new award that seeks to increase the numbers of bicycle journeys made by students, staff and visitors to and from their campuses.
The Cycling Scotland, Cycle Friendly Campus Award, financed by Transport Scotland is a funding initiative to help establish cycling as a more attractive and practical lifestyle option by making cycling a more accessible and convenient travel choice.
Through this award, funding is available for colleges and universities to make improvements on and around campus, which will increase the numbers of cycle journeys.
Through its Cycling Action Plan for Scotland (CAPS) the Scottish Government’s vision is that “10% of everyday journeys to be made by bike, by 2020”.*
In support of this, colleges and universities have been applying for the government funded award to enable them to add and improve cycling facilities on campus which includes changing facilities, signage and cycle parking.
Dundee and Angus College have registered and are working towards achieving the Cycle Friendly Campus Award and have selected the innovative Aero™ Cycle Shelter as their cycle storage solution across campus.
The Aero Cycle Shelter provides safe and secure cycle storage for up to ten bikes. Its clear, curved roof and side panels are designed to provide extensive shelter from the elements, while remaining unobstructive to the views of security cameras.
Its unique and stylish contemporary design means it will fit perfectly within the campus environment, and most importantly, it provides the option for more people to be able to cycle to the campus daily, with an appealing hub which offers a safe and secure storage.
Glasdon have a range of cost-effective cycle storage solutions which are ideal for campuses, including cycle lockers, bike stands and canopies as well as bike shelters.
