National Cycle Network 20th anniversary celebrated at Parliament

Published 17 September 2015 by Colin Howden

The Scottish Parliament will this lunchtime (Thursday 17 September) debate the 20th Anniversary of the National Cycle Network in Scotland.

In advance of the debate, we have issued a parliamentary briefing highlighting the role of the NCN in promoting cycle tourism in Scotland.

Colin Howden, Director of Transform Scotland said:

“Our 2013 research report, The Value of Cycle Tourism, found that the total value of cycle tourism — by residents and visitors, touring and leisure cycling — in Scotland is up to £239m per year. As well as making rural communities more vibrant and contributing to local economies, cycle tourism is also good for public health and for the environment.”
