ABOUT SCMA

The SCMA first stated in 2009 and attained charity status in 2011 (Charity number SC042950). The charity is run by existing and ex cycle messengers. The aim is to :

  • Promote cycling in an urban environment
  • To host cycling events and extend participation of these events to include a wider cycling community, encouraging all cyclists to participate.
  • To set up a bicycle messenger fund which will provide support and financial help to cycle messengers who have suffered an injury whilst at work. As self-employed sub contractors they are not entitled to any kind of sick or injury pay
  • Encourage the use of bicycles as a simple and cheap means of transport.
  • To show how beneficial cycling can be to health and fitness and how it allows a feeling of freedom in an increasingly congested urban setting.
