Charity Sustrans has launched an interactive map to make cycling easier for key workers – which has already been backed by bike shops in the north.
Using postcode areas to search for offers, the map lists where frontline staff can go for bike repairs and maintenance as well as showing offers on bike purchasing or hire and equipment.
Three shops in the Highlands and Islands appear alongside others on the map.
OrangeFox Bikes in Muir of Ord is prioritising work on essential employees bikes while South Skye Cycles have asked those who need repairs to get in touch and Ticket to Ride in Inverness is offering free bike loans as well as selling some bikes at triple discount for NHS staff.
Edinburgh Bike Co-operative in Aberdeen is also offering free puncture repairs to all NHS workers, including free inner tube and 50% off servicing.
Cycling and walking tips are also be available to view.
Sustrans Scotland director Karen McGregor said it was “fantastic” tool, adding: “The online map was created with the needs of key workers in mind and we hope it will prove useful for everyone needing to cycle to work, be it an experienced commuter who may need a spare part or a novice who needs access to a cycle.”
