The project aimed to extend the work of the Glasgow Tandem Club, by recruiting and training more volunteer pilots to support taster sessions, training and group rides for new stokers wishing to give tandem riding a try.
Building on the knowledge and expertise of our key partners at the Glasgow Tandem Club, we wanted to support the growth of the network across the west by the end of the project.
We all understand that physical activity is good for our mental and physical health and wellbeing, and we want to enable everyone – whatever their age, ability or background – to cycle.
Our project challenged beliefs about who is able to cycle and empowered people to live the active and independent life they want to as included members of the local community.
In Tandem was part of an established programme of Cycling UK projects that support people to get pedalling on a cycle that meets their needs and empowers them.
