A West Lothian Council funded project named ‘Love to Ride’ has been launched to get more West Lothian residents and workplaces cycling more.
Love to Ride runs an International year-round programme for anyone to join, however in West Lothian, the organisation has arranged a free workplace and organisation challenge that will enable these workplaces to compete.
The purpose of the project is to get back on their bikes and start cycling. Cycling is a fantastic way to exercise – it reduces stress, improves health and is much better for our natural environment.
The Love to Ride programme will help those who may be apprehensive to start cycling overcome any barriers.
Anyone can sign up as an individual and then, should they wish, they can register as a workplace or cycling group.
Labour MSP, Neil Findlay MSP said:
“This is a fantastic initiative, funded by West Lothian Council that will incentivise more people in our local communities get back on their bikes.
“We know that cycling has a whole range of benefits, from helping people to get fitter to improving our natural environment – I welcome this news and encourage anyone who can to get involved.
