Glasgow Community Cycling Network (GCCN)
A collaboration of organisations delivering cycling activities across Glasgow, the network focuses on people that may not typically engage with cycling such as families, people with health conditions and people with disabilities.
GCCN brings together a range of community cycling projects, with the shared aim of helping more people in Glasgow to cycle, more often. Partners work together to create a range of resources, training opportunities, events and information to encourage people to get on their bikes. The network promotes behaviour change amongst people of all ages and abilities – helping to increase levels of cycling for recreation, utility, health and commuting.
The network was established in April 2016, funded by Glasgow City Council through Smarter Choices, Smarter Places. The current network members are Bike for Good, South West Community Cycles, Play Together on Pedals, Free Wheel North, On Bikes, and Glasgow Eco Trust, all featured on Aye Cycle Glasgow. Cycling UK provides a co-ordinator role to the network – organising joint events, supporting consistent evaluation, managing joint communications and helping to promote activities.
