The College is delighted to learn that it has been awarded funding from Transport Scotland’s first E-Bike Grant Fund to support its Sustainability Agenda and recognise the work being done with the GK Velocity project at the Springburn Cycle Hub.
The E-bike Grant Fund is aimed at local authorities, public sector agencies, community organisations, colleges and universities. It also targets Home Energy Scotland advice centres, active travel hubs and community centres so that more people can test ride e-bikes.
Glasgow Kelvin College is grateful to have received £5,700 to help provide three new e-bikes, including a trike, which will be available soon for use by arrangement with the Cycling Officer, Sandra Lavergne.
The plan is that staff may use these for sustainable inter-campus travel and they will also be available for led-rides with students and local residents through their community organisations.
So get on your bike – there’s no excuse!!
