Cycling advice

On 9 August 2021 Scotland moved out of the levels system and the legal requirement for physical distancing and limits on gatherings was removed. Everyone should continue to act carefully and remain cautious.

It’s advisable to walk, wheel or cycle regularly for your health and wellbeing. If you’re not self-isolating, we recommend walking, wheeling or cycling for journeys and exercise.

Please visit the Scottish Government website for the latest information and advice on Covid-19.

Walking, cycling and wheeling guidance

If you're cycling on shared paths, please be considerate of other people walking, wheeling, running and cycling: keep your distance from others not in your group, slow your pace and stop to let people pass. Be mindful and take even more care around people who might be more vulnerable, traveling at a slower pace than you or who you are with, like children or dogs.

If you’re a member of an organised cycling club, please follow Scottish Cycling guidance.
