Admittedly it wasn’t as earth shattering as Einstein’s, who famously came up with the Theory of Relativity while out riding his bike. But it did occur to me, whilst riding into Glasgow city Government figures, included in this report in the centre alongside a friend who recently started to cycle Statistics and Trends section, show high levels of to work after finding out I did, that in order to double people cycling to work in areas of Scotland, including the amount of people cycling, we need only convince as many as 7% in Edinburgh. each existing cyclist to convert one friend. You’ll see many more examples of the growing cycling It seemed so simple. culture in Scotland mentioned throughout this report. The hard work of Cycling Scotland, our partners and Theories do tend to come in a flash of course, and stakeholders is paying off. Cycling is starting to evolve turning them into reality is rarely as easy. But the into a commonplace, everyday transport mode, on increasing visibility of cycling on our paths, streets the cusp of a crucial tipping point where the wider and roads does seem to be having something of a population is starting to take notice and try it out for similar effect. themselves. More people are now cycling, and this demonstrates The cumulative effect of this cultural shift towards to other people that they could also be out on their cycling, the chain reaction of thousands more bikes.

  5. 5. CYCLING SCOTLAND Annual Report 2010 / 2011 WWW.CYCLINGSCOTLAND.ORG 03 CHIEF EXECUTIVE’S REPORT A new focus on curbing climate change is at the heart of the Scottish Government’s plans for the next 11 years, as outlined in the recent Report on Proposals and Policies published this year. The report outlines the ways in which the government’s ambitious climate change targets can be integrated across all its areas of work to provide the most joined up cross- departmental approach to cutting emissions between now and 2022. The Government’s challenge is to balance funding the urgent action needed to tackle climate change with the need to accommodate the current spending cuts. What this annual report shows, is that promoting greater use of the bicycle is one of the ideal ways to meet that challenge. Over a fifth of the CO2 produced in the UK comes from transport, and with 60% of the car journeys we make clocking in at less than 5 miles, cycling is one of the obvious solutions to cutting our transport emissions. This has been apparent for a long time. We can see that when the conditions are right, people are keen to cycle. Over 14,000 Scots got out on their The challenge has always been in overcoming the bikes on 11th September this year, as freshnlo Pedal scepticism that Scots would ever really embrace for Scotland offered a range of routes where cyclists cycling, and in persuading those holding the purse were prioritised to make people confident enough to strings that investment in cycling would really deliver cycle between Glasgow and Edinburgh. value for money.

Arthurlie Primary School in Barrhead The Give Me Cycle Space campaign aims to encourage more children to cycle to school by targeting the biggest barrier - parents’ concerns about their children cycling on the road. The campaign creates large awareness zones around schools, which asks drivers to be aware of child cyclists and give them as much space as possible. This awareness raising, run at the same time as cycle training in schools, is designed to reassure parents that cycling to school is a safe and healthy option for their children.
