Highlands and Islands Enterprise has launched a bike pool to encourage staff at An Lòchran at Inverness Campus to cycle.

A group of bike enthusiasts applied to the Cycle Friendly Development Fund and were awarded £7000. The initiative is run by Cycling Scotland with support from Transport Scotland.

The grant has paid for four bikes, two of which are electric, as well as safety and security equipment for staff to use for travel to work, meetings in the local area, and for recreational cycling.

More than 180 staff are based at An Lòchran.

Karen Thomson, campus senior development manager, said: “The bike pool fits perfectly with our healthy-lifestyle ethos at Inverness Campus; we love seeing people using the lovely parklands.”
