Dr Bike and Recycling Days

The Carbon Clyde team are delighted to back working with ScotRail, Tesco Craigmarloch and Recyke-a-bike on two upcoming events, offering a free safety check on bikes.

If you want to have your bike checked please come along to either Croy Station, between 7.30am and 10am or Tesco Craigmarloch, between 10.30am and 1.30pm, on Friday (28th October).

Project Manager, Karen Welsh said: “This will be our third Dr Bike event and we hope that they can continue on a monthly basis, not only at Croy Station but at other venues in Cumbernauld. The funding for our events is down to the Clyde FC Community Foundation being awarded funding through the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund.

While we are at Tesco we will also have our Kit & Boot Recycling Facility open too and if you want to drop off any unwanted kit, please bring this down on Friday.

“The Scottish Government are committed to encouraging healthier and greener travel and are investing money to motivate people out of their cars. Their aim, by 2020, is to invest in active travel and they remain committed to a shared vision of 10% of everyday journeys being made by bike. This event is that start of the Carbon Clyde Project’s own commitment to share this vision.

“We will also be delivering, in partnership with Recyke-a-bike, led rides and bike maintenance workshops in the future.”

The Kit & Boot Recycling facility will also be open prior to kick-off at Saturday’s match between Clyde and Stirling Albion at Broadwood. Donations of unwanted kit, boots, or equipment from any sport will be gratefully accepted. The donations are then free for anyone to uplift.
