Pedal on Parliament

Let's Make Cycling in Scotland SAFE for ALL
by kaputniq.

There will be an event in Edinburgh next month called Pedal on Parliament calling on our elected leader to making Scotland a cycle-friendly nation.

The Manifesto calls on all Scotland’s politicians, of all parties, to sign up to the following eight point manifesto in order to make cycling a realistic choice for everyone, from eight to eighty – and show the rest of the UK that cycling doesn’t just belong on continental Europe, but in the country where it all began:

  1. Proper funding for cycling
  2. Design cycling into Scotland’s roads
  3. Safer speeds where people live, work and play
  4. Integrate cycling into local transport strategies
  5. Sensible road traffic law and enforcement
  6. Reduce the risk of HGVs to cyclists and pedestrians
  7. A strategic and joined-up programme of road user training
  8. Solid research on cycling to support policy-making

Please come and support this event on 28th April, gather on the Meadow from 14:00 and the ride will set off towards Holyrood at 15:00. Please note the change of time.
