Conversations Around Inclusive Cycling
Have you ever thought that cycling wasn’t for you? Or have you got a question about inclusivity and accessibility? Join us from the 22nd – 26th March as we bring together a fascinating series of daily interactive sessions to share the joys of cycling for everyone at higher and further education.
What is Switching Gears Festival and Who is it for?
Switching Gears Festival is for anyone who wants to learn more about creating an inclusive cycling community at higher and further education. It is part of a wider project to increase inclusivity and accessibility in cycling through sharing knowledge, starting discussions and changing the perception of what it means to be a cyclist. Our event is open to all but we particularly encourage attendance from staff and students at higher and further education in Scotland.
How to Join
Simply head to our Eventbrite page and book as many events as you would like. The event is free to attend for all. If you have any issues with booking through Eventbrite please contact the Switching Gears Team and we will be more than happy to help you out.
