Breakout sessions

Delegates took part in one of our three afternoon breakout sessions:

From climate change to a cost-of-living crisis, Covid-19 to finding a community after conflict, this roundtable breakout session explored the big challenges we face, and the role cycling can play in helping to overcome them.


  • Jess Pepper (Founder and Director: Climate Cafés)
  • Steven McClusky (Founder: Bikes for Refugees)
  • Phil Jones (Development Manager: Recyke-a-Bike)
  • Hugh Macgregor (Cycling Scotland)

Facilitated by Nina Saunders (Cycle Training Manager: Cycling Scotland)


This breakout session featured a panel discussion on how we can make our roads safer, and included opportunities for questions from delegates.


  • Chief Inspector Andy Gibb (Road Policing Department, Police Scotland)
  • Brwa Mohamed (Head of Design, Engineering and Assurance: Sustrans Scotland)
  • Keith Irving (Chief Executive: Cycling Scotland)

Our partners, Forth Environment Link, took delegates on a guided tour of local active travel infrastructure which is making it possible for more people living, working, studying and visiting Stirling to cycle more safely.
