Scotland: Tip of the week

Bike rescue

How’s this for cycle-friendly from ScotRail: “If you can’t complete the cycle portion of your journey as a result of an accident, vandalism or breakdown, we can make sure that you (and your bike, if appropriate) get to your Scottish mainland destination.”

No need to register, just have a valid rail ticket for that day ready when you call ScotRail Cycle Rescue on 0800 0717 212.
