Cyclists in Arbroath are being offer help to stay safe by Stewart Milne Homes, as the company gears up for National Bike Week 2016.
The annual event, which runs until Sunday (June 19), aims to promote cycling and show how it can be part of everyday life.
The housebuilder is keen to support safe cycling with the provision of bike lights for local schools, cycling groups and community organisations near its Monarch’s Rise development in Arbroath.
Aileen Beverly, Chartered Quantity Surveyor for Stewart Milne Homes is a keen cyclist who recently took part in the company’s ‘bike4forty’ challenge. The event saw eight employees cycle over 700 miles to visit 20 of the Group’s developments across Scotland and north west England, raising in excess of £60,000 for local charities.
A member of the Deeside Thistle Cycling Club and Deeside Divas, Aileen is an experienced road cyclist who has also completed the London to Paris ride of 280 miles in under 24 hours.
Aileen said: “Cycling is a great activity for everyone regardless of age or fitness and is the ideal way for family and friends to spend time together enjoying a healthy and fun activity.
“National Bike Week is focused on encouraging people to give cycling a try but safety is always important so Stewart Milne Homes is hoping to play its part by providing bike lights for local youngsters.”
To submit an application for the bike lights please email SMHbikeweek@bigpartnership.co.uk with details of your organisation, contact details and number of lights required.
