Campus is wheel deal for cyclists

Have your say

QUEEN Margaret University’s push on pedal power has paid off after it received the Cycle Friendly Employer Award from Cycling Scotland.

The university, which has provided bike sheds, showers, cycle workshops, group cycling events, a bike user group and bike to work scheme, is now seeing more staff and students than ever before travelling to the Musselburgh campus by bicycles.

Cyclists have also been able to take advantage of the National Cycle Route 1 which runs through the campus.

Matt Sanders, a keen cyclist and Green Travel Champion at Queen Margaret University, said: “We are delighted to receive this award from the largest cycling charity in Scotland.

“It’s wonderful to know that our efforts are resulting in an increased level of people travelling by bike.”
