Pedal on Parliament 2

Pedal on Parliament 2

April 3, 2013 Off By JB

Look to make Scotland a cycle-friendly nation and make cycling safe for all.

Last year 3000 cyclists, young and old, pedalled on the Scottish Parliament to call for safer cycling for everyone. Despite plenty of warm words from politicians since then, nothing fundamental has changed so we’re doing it again

Sunday 19 May 2013, 3pm, The Meadows, Edinburgh

Join 1000’s of cyclists on this organised cycle run on closed roads from The Meadows to The Scottish Parliament. Bring the family and be a part of this momentous day.
