cycling Initiative

cycling Initiative

What change do you want to make now to address the climate change crisis? Give more access to bikes and make scotland more cycle friendly. Bikes are expensive, and not everyone can afford them, therefore, by offering funding or hardship to those who cannot afford them will help reduce the amount of pollution. What do you need to make this change? - make bikes more accessible for those who can’t afford them. - make areas more cycle friendly - offer Initiatives to encourage people to cycle more.

Points

Anything we can do to encourage cycling makes our environment cleaner and our population healthier. Anything we do that acts as a barrier to it (like leaving it as unfriendly as it generally is on our roads) is an own-goal.

Bike transport is way less carbon intensive

I too would like to be paid to ride a bike...

We should encourage zero (or practically zero) carbon transport such as cycling as transport is one of the largest sources of emissions in Scotland.

In some areas bicycles are available - I see racks and racks of public-use bikes not used by people Not sure if it's because of cost or a fear of taking on traffic?
