Smarter Travel is about getting around with the maximum benefit to you and the minimum impact on the planet.

It’s about making your journey in a way that benefits your health, your pocket and your state of mind.

Smarter Travel is about being flexible and using the right type (mode) of transport to fit with your plans. So whether you do it one day a week or whether you change your whole lifestyle it all makes a difference.

Not all options may be suitable to everyone, and how you travel should be viewed with that in mind.

The May Cycle Challenge is coming!
This year, the challenge is based around a virtual around the world cycle tour.
The Naviki app based challenge aims to encourage new and existing cyclists to get out on their bikes for all types of cycling from commuting to just enjoying a family ride in the park.

Total distance is just over 42,000 km with the route being calculated from city to city based on what would be possible to ride. Flight distance is not counted.

All cycling counts and people from right across the Clyde Valley can take part.

You can compete as an individual or part of a team with led rides, Dr Bike events and themed prizes throughout the month of May to motivate you to get out on your bike.

Not only does the challenge provide the perfect backdrop to getting out on your bike, information from the challenge is also used to help develop our cycle network.

Challenge Launch Event
Car Free George Square April 28, 10:30 – 16:30.

Come along and enjoy:
Climbing Wall, MTB/BMX pump track, Free Fall Airbag, eBike tryout, Bike Set-Up, Music, nextbike promotions, Dr Bike, Heart Radio Paparazzi Wall, Cycle Training, Play Outdoors, Face Painting and much, much more!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Around The World Cycle Challenge Launch are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
