West College Scotland would like to encourage everyone travelling to College to consider their travel habits and choose the most sustainable method, if possible. The College has taken many steps to offer students, staff and visitors alike a range of cycling facilities to encourage travel by bike or walking.

If you would like to hear more about our Bike Club, bike hire, personalised travel planning or led rides, contact WCS and ask for the cycling officer and they can provide you more information and advice. Alternatively, you can find us on Facebook!

The below outlines what each campus has to offer to you if you choose to travel by bike. Clydebank and Greenock campuses are well connected to the national cycling network, offering traffic free paths connecting to the nearby towns and cities. Paisley is currently harder to reach on traffic-free roads, but only a short cycle or walk away from Gilmour Street train station!
