Bikes on trains

bikes on trains

Excellent article in the Herald today (29 March) about bikes on trains and the reduction in bike spaces on the West Highland Line (Glasgow to Oban, Fort William and Mallaig) raising the threat to tourism.

Also, Ewan Jeffrey, from our sister organisation in the east, Spokes, was on Radio Scotland’s phone in programme, 09:00 – 10:00 this morning.  It was a very pro-bike, pro-tourism programme with, unfortunately, no-one from Transport Scotland appearing to defend their decision on the West Highland Line to cut the bookable bike spaces from 6 to 2.

Note: the photo above is just to catch your eye – this is not the way to transport bikes, or people, at speeds of 70mph or more.
