Chief Executive’s Report Cycling Scotland 2009/2010 Annual Report & Accounts Bike Week is held every year in June as a way to entice people to try out cycling by participating in one of the hundreds of entry level events on offer, with the idea being that it leaves behind a legacy of cycling activity throughout the summer. In Bike Week this year, the Scottish Government set out plans intended to have a far longer legacy, as the Cycling Action Plan for Scotland (CAPS) was published with the vision of getting 10% of journeys in Scotland made by bike by 2020 as its core aim. CAPS was launched by Transport, Scotland, and Transport Scotland is now the Infrastructure and Climate Change Minister agency leading the development of CAPS.

Following the publication of CAPS, Cycling Scotland chaired the first meeting of the Cycle Training Standards and Delivery Group. The group consists of representatives from CTC, Cycling Scotland, Learning and Teaching Scotland, Road Safety Grampian, Road Safety Scotland, sportscotland, Sustrans, Transport Scotland, Volunteer Development Scotland and West of Scotland Road Safety Forum. The group has announced additional funding to support the delivery of cycle training, and will meet regularly to drive the project forward. From 2011 Cycling Scotland will co-ordinate the distribution of resources for all 3 levels of training to Road Safety Officers, Active School Coordinators and any other delivery partners. Another key development in our Education and Training programme that has been prioritised in CAPS is working with key stakeholders and the tertiary education sector to offer accredited modules on integrating cycling best practice within their professional roles.

Events such as freshnlo Pedal for Scotland can play a vital role in encouraging people to get back on their bikes, including young people as seen here enjoying the Family Ride at this year’s event. Information and Guidance The Cycling Action Plan for Scotland also places significant importance on promoting the use of planning policy, access legislation and design guidance to a wide range of professionals. Cycling Scotland is addressing this by working in partnership with a range of stakeholders on the SATIN project - a technical advisory group for those designing and implementing infrastructure for outdoor access and active travel networks. The group is called SATIN, the Scottish Access Technical Information Network, and will act as a single mechanism to exchange good practice and to store, disseminate and share information amongst those delivering outdoor access and active travel infrastructure in Scotland. A web-based resource is being created as the key mechanism for this dissemination of information. Cycling Scotland 2009/2010 Annual Report & Accounts In order to measure the success of the wide range of initiatives within CAPS, Transport Scotland has also identified the need to develop guidance for gathering data on the numbers of people cycling at a local level. The SATIN web resource will promote the use of best Cycling Scotland will take this forward and practice in planning policy, provide guidance, advice and support for cycle access legislation and design guidance. monitoring at a local and national level.
