Rock Up & Ride Project

Scottish Cycling’s Rock Up & Ride project is a series of fun, free and easy to access sessions, which link directly with a cycling club, aimed at delivering a long-term increase in cycling activity and consequently behavioural change.

By giving the participant something fun to do with their bike, and a means of developing their skills and confidence, they will see greater value in the bike and the independence it can give them. This will increase the likelihood of that participant using the bike for everyday journeys such as cycling to school, the shops, or other short journeys.

Delivered at eight pilot sites across Scotland, each benefiting from a dedicated cycling facility and an existing cycling community, the Rock Up & Ride programme aims to demonstrate and evidence the ability to grow cycle sport in a sustainable manner, alongside ensuring that all school aged children have free access to a bike.
