Glasgow Kelvin Velocity Cycle Hub is an innovative and key element of the College’s sustainability agenda, based at the College’s Springburn campus. It was the outcome of a group of the College’s Support to Learn students and staff, aimed at encouraging outdoor and cycling activities. The project gathered momentum and support from the College and wider community in 2016, culminating in funding provision from Cycling Scotland to appoint an on-site Cycling Officer, and support from the City Council Community Planning Partnership to build the Cycle Hub.
Since its opening in early 2018 for all students, staff, and the wider community, Glasgow Kelvin Velocity operates as a one-stop source for all bicycle-related needs. At the Hub, we facilitate bicycle maintenance and social events, workshops, training and provide information. Glasgow Kelvin Velocity inspires change and encourages the community to enjoy the numerous environmental, social and health benefits of cycling.
