Crichton Cycle Week: 25 October to 31 October
As part of The Crichton’s ambition to get to Net Zero we will be hosting a series of events and initiatives throughout the year to encourage members of The Crichton Community to make active travel choices, benefiting the environment, their health and their pocket. This is of particular relevance in the current fuel crisis.
Could you change how you travel and make a positive contribution to your health and the environment?
The first event will take place on Monday 25th October at Crichton Central, so dust the cobwebs off your bike this week and get cycling to The Crichton…

Crichton Central is open 10am -4pm 7 days a week.
There will also be a mini cycling festival at Crichton Central from 12-3pm on Monday 25th October where we will be hosting a range of local organisations and businesses. You are welcome to come along and find out more about how you can make cycling and active travel part of your routine.
There will be information available to help you buy a new bike or e-bike, how to keep safe on the road and how to access free skills training as well as information about local cycle routes. We will have a range of bikes and active travel options for you to try and Dr Bike will be here to check out your bike and get you safely back on the road. There is an opportunity to get security marking for free and information about registering your bike on the National Cycle Database. Come along if you can.
