Cycling in the UK is on the move! Sir Chris Hoy, Sir Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish are now household names after their successes at the Olympics and the Tour de France. And next year’s Commonwealth Games in the new national velodrome in Glasgow offers an exciting follow up to Team GB’s successes at the London Olympics.
And across the country, many of us mere mortals are following in their slipstream, cycling for pleasure, fitness and to get to work and school. Cycling has it all: offering improved health for all ages, a better local and global environment, a low-cost means of transport in areas where public transport is ineffective and as a convenient link at either end of a public transport journey. Mass participation cyclo-sportive events like the Etape Caledonia offer economic development and promotional opportunities for host destinations.
