Bikeability Scotland Guidelines for Child and Adult Protection

Bikeability Scotland is delivered by our local authority partners, almost exclusively through schools.  In some authorities, this is supplemented by the involvement of Sustrans IBike Officers.  Local authorities and schools can expect to see the biggest impact on young people for cycle training and opportunities to ride, where a dedicated Bikeability Coordinator and an IBike Officer are present.  A joint statement detailing the roles and responsibilities of these posts, and how they work together within the local authority, can be found here.
