BBC Scotland came along to Clyde Cycle Park to see the great coaching being done with elderly people from our community through our partnership with the Lightburn Elderly Action Project (LEAP).

A group of older citizens from LEAP come to the Park every week for a skills session and a guided ride along the river. The BBC reported on the experiences of one of the group, Billy McDermott, who rediscovered cycling at the age of 72 for the first time in 55 years and attends a cycling class at the Clyde Cycle Park every Wednesday. “I would say it’s given me an extra bit of health,” he said. “It’s good for the mind, speaking to more people in the group is definitely a benefit.”
