PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Efforts to turn Troon into a cycle-friendly town are gathering pace after a councillor landed new bike racks for different areas. The town now boasts eight additional bike parking stands after SNP politician Craig Mackay asked for them to be installed. He is hoping the availability of the lock-up spaces will encourage people to jump on their bike to nip to the shop instead of getting into cars. Councillor Mackay noticed shops in residential areas in the seaside town had no cycle spaces. He said: “Local small shops provide a vital role in everybody's daily lives, but we see many people driving short distances to them to pick up small quantities of shopping. "They could easily do this by bicycle. As a healthier, environmentally beneficial alternative, cycling also relieves parking pressures in residential streets around these shops. Until now, the lack of secure parking has been a barrier to doing so.” Download the Ayrshire Live app today The Ayrshire Live app is available to download now.
