Love Loch Lomond Launches Free Cycle Rack Initiative

Destination organisation Love Loch Lomond is delighted to announce a new initiative that will enhance outdoor adventure and the visitor experience in the Loch Lomond, Trossachs and Clyde Sea Lochs area with the installation of cycle racks. 

Loch Lomond, Trossachs and Clyde Sea Lochs businesses are being invited to apply to Love Loch Lomond for cycle racks at their establishments. The racks will be allocated where businesses can best demonstrate the need for cycle parking in strategic locations and both the racks and installation will be provided free of charge by Love Loch Lomond.  

Stuart Cordner, Chair of Love Loch Lomond said: “We are delighted to be launching this initiative which will enhance both the cycling experience for visitors to our area and benefit those businesses that can offer cycle park facilities for customers.

“Many visitors arrive with expensive bikes and cyclists are not happy at leaving their bikes against a fence or wall. Love Loch Lomond has identified ‘connectivity’ as being of major importance to the delivery of a memorable tourism offering and we have a number of current projects including cycling infrastructure; Waterbus Services; working with Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, walking routes and interpretation panels. 

We hope this initiative will be an integral part of a cycling infrastructure that will ensure Loch Lomond and the Clyde Sea Lochs remains a must-see destination for cycling enthusiasts, holiday-makers and for the growing number of local cyclists.”

The initiative is free and open for applications from all tourism and hospitality businesses in Loch Lomond, Trossachs and Clyde Sea Lochs areas.

Businesses must apply by 21st November 2014. Information and an application form can be downloaded here. (Available on the Business Page).
