Nestrans were delighted to welcome Lee Craigie, Scotland’s Active Nation Commissioner to Aberdeen today, Tuesday 26th March. Lee is a long-established inspirational figure in the world of cycling, not only as an impressive competitor and endurance rider but also as an advocate for the therapeutic and social aspects of cycling and being outdoors. Her new role will see Lee act as an official representative for walking, cycling and physical activity and work to keep active travel on the agenda, help to implement and promote the Cycling Action Plan for Scotland and the National Walking Strategy.
“I’m delighted to be here today to learn more about the opportunities and challenges Aberdeen and the wider region faces in bringing about the transformation to become more active.
“Becoming an active nation is not just about transport, and so in addition to trying out the infrastructure in the area, I was very pleased to be able to meet with members of the public, local councillors from across the political spectrum, business leaders and NHS Grampian to learn more.”
