Angus Cycle Hub: Breaking the barrier to active travel

Arbroath's residents and visitors can now easily make local walking and cycling journeys thanks to Paths for All and Angus Cycle Hub

Angus Cycle Hub

Recent research undertaken locally by Angus Cycle Hub revealed that people felt there was no real safe places for cycling direct into the centre of Arbroath.

The team then went out and cycled and walked the local area to get a better understanding of the barriers faced by people who wanted to travel actively.

Members of the hub then made a successful application to Paths for All's communities Active Travel fund, supported by Transport Scotland.

The result was the Arbroath Active Travel Network - a signposted, suggested route using footpaths and road around the area.

The route is close to good paths, cycle paths and infrastructure and is designed as a tool to help encourage journeys by walking and cycling by the community and visitors to Arbroath.

Scott Francis, project director said: "The website is a great way for us to engage with the community too, ad help us publicise our social rides."
