Social Prescribing for Cycling: Key Learning

Jun 2022

GCPH was commissioned by Bike for Good to collate and report on evaluation data captured on their 10-week ‘Social Prescribing for Cycling’ programme. This report highlights key learning from the delivery of the programme and the referral to it by Community Links Practitioners (CLPs) across Glasgow.

Although the programme was disrupted due to COVID lockdown measures, staff shortages, and challenges relating to how monitoring information was collected, the findings show positive outcomes in terms of cycling confidence and long-term cycling behaviour, mental and physical health benefits, and some examples of wider participation in community life. Positive working relationships between Bike for Good staff and CLPs were also reported.

Recommendations are offered in relation to the continued delivery, promotion, and evaluation of the programme.
