After a few ups and downs, we officially opened on Saturday 4 February and we were delighted that so many people joined us that day as our guided walk was piped away from the Hub!
Local author Ed Shoote spoke about his adventures and “Gravel Rides Scotland” book, before some local cyclists took up our offer of free bike safety checks.
Since then, our health walks, led cycle rides and bike servicing & repairs have kept us busy – and it is fantastic to be participating in Scotland’s Cycle Repair Scheme, funded by Cycling UK.
Our programme of activities is posted on social media; there are always posters in the Hub window, and lots of local information inside. As well as maps, we also have QR codes to scan. Our QR codes give information about cycling routes, starting and finishing in Galashiels. There are also QR codes linking to walking and cycling trails on Scottish Borders Council’s website.
We would encourage anyone, be they a permanent or temporary local, to pop in for a chat and find out what’s available in and around Galashiels – and we are more than happy for questions about why there is information about autism interspersed amongst the maps and local information!
