A North Glasgow social landlord has secured additional funding to support their cycling projects across the region this year.

Ng Homes received the funding from Go Cycle which will be channelled towards its Early Years Learn to Cycle and Bike Confidence programme, teaching cycling skills, building confidence, and instilling a love of cycling in young children.

Greg Cann, project manager at Ng Homes, said: "Our goal is to get more people on bikes and ensure that everyone has the opportunity and the confidence to enjoy cycling whether it is for fun, exercise or as a way of getting about the community.

"We're delighted to have this funding and to be able to continue to offer these events again in 2024 and look forward to sharing the benefits of cycling as it's a fantastic way to support both physical and mental wellbeing."

The funding will also support its Active Travel initiative runs maintenance drop-in sessions, essential skills, and community rides among others.

The landlord revealed that the Active Hub, located on Eccles Street, will resume Tuesday afternoon sessions starting January 23, while Dr Bike sessions which provide bicycle maintenance advice, will be held on February 13 and March 12 .

The programme runs every Sunday from 12noon to 1pm at Springburn Sports Centre until the end of March.

The funding, administered through Glasgow City Council and Glasgow Life, comes from Go Cycle Glasgow. They aim to motivate more residents to take up or return to cycling in order to make it a lifelong activity.
