Uk news Scheme to get more people on their bikes in Troon PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - Eight cycle racks have been installed in the seaside town as part of the project.
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.

The eco-conscious dad-of-tw, who cycles to the shop, is a keen supporter of parents opting for reusable nappies. He recently lodged a successful motion calling for South Ayrshire Council to look at ways to encourage people to be more healthy and active. Councillor Mackay said: “I was able to secure agreement from Ayrshire Roads Alliance to install bike racks outside all the community shopping locations in Troon and Barassie, as well as two new town centre sites.
