Are you looking for an opportunity to inspire and encourage more young people to get active? We're looking for friendly and enthusiastic volunteers in Dundee to help support children to walk, cycle and scoot to school. We're looking for volunteers to help out with a range of cycling and scooting activities, to get more children to travel actively to school. These activities are a lot of fun and can be really rewarding; what could be better than helping children to ride their bike without stabilisers for the first time? The role will be part of I Bike Dundee - a new project promoting cycling, scooting and walking to school, and for everyday journeys in leisure time. It is run by Sustrans in partnership with Dundee City Council. You will help our I Bike Officer and school staff to deliver cycling and scooting-related activities in Dundee schools, such as: learn-to-cycle sessions cycle skills in the playground led cycle rides Bikeability Scotland cycle training
