Blairvadach Active Travel Promotion

Starting in August 2021, for 4 months,  Blairvadach will be delivering a Bikeability initiative to support your school to improve active travel. The Blairvadach team will have a focus on supporting the roll out of Bikeability Instructor training to teachers and support staff. The project will encourage school staff to undertake 2*1/2 day training days to become a Bikeability Instructor. In addition, the team will then support you to get your own school delivering to young people. Our aim is that every pupil in Glasgow will have easy access to Bikeability through their school by the end of the project.
