Cycling Success for Livingston Primary School

Primary 7 pupils from Livingston’s Williamston Primary School have won an activity fuelled day out at the Low Port Centre after clocking up an impressive 84 cycle trips to school during a week-long cycle to school competition run by Cycling Scotland.

The competition was part of Cycling Scotland’s Give Everyone Cycle Space campaign which asked drivers to give those travelling by bike enough space when passing.

West Lothian Council took part in the campaign for the first time this year with a day of led cycle rides, route planning workshops and class room activities. In total, 75 pupils and staff took part in the led rides on the Livingston off-road cycle network.

The Give Everyone Cycle Space message ran across Scotland for four weeks and was visible on television, buses, bus shelters, and phone boxes and online to encourage drivers to slow down and give everyone their space on the road. This was supported by a programme of school based activities spanning 14 local authorities and included led rides and route planning workshops to encourage more children and young people to cycle to school and other destinations.
