Equality in active travel
Working with the hardest to reach communities.
We want to make sure cycling is available to everyone. That's why our community programmes focus on supporting and working with individuals who have been typically underrepresented or excluded from sustainable travel programmes.
The seeds of The Bike Station were sown in the late nineties when some parents with children at Sciennes Primary School in Edinburgh set up an informal bike swap for kids who had outgrown their bikes.
The parents decided that Edinburgh needed a more formal bike recycling operation. They successfully applied for grant funding and in April 2001 the Castle Cliff Bicycle Workshop on Johnstone Terrace opened.
