Over a thousand people took part in four free, beginner-friendly Pedal for Scotland events held in Ayr, Lerwick, Highland Perthshire and Falkirk between August and October 2021.
Each event was held on a route that was marshalled, closed to traffic between 5 and 8 miles long.
They provided a welcoming, safe and fun environment for people new to cycling and families. These were organised by local community organisations and helped to showcase local cycling infrastructure and routes.
The events were accessible to everyone, with adapted bikes available to hire.
Feedback from the events was very positive, with 72% of participants giving the route top marks in a post-event survey and 73% giving the same highest marks to the atmosphere of the event.
Pedal for Scotland also funded nine, smaller capacity, new cycling events across Scotland, from Dumfries & Galloway in the south, to the Highlands & Islands in the north.
