Around 4,000 cyclists gathered in Edinburgh on Sunday 19 May and rode to Holyrood to deliver an 8-point manifesto calling for more investment in cycling, slower speeds, and better facilities for cyclists on Scotland’s roads. Peter Hayman, CTC councillor for Scotland, pedalled with them...
"Some dampness and lack of sun", Peter says, "didn't stop an impressive turn out for the Pedal on Parliament (PoP) in Scotland yesterday.
"Last year, PoP was a new and exciting challenge to the Government, and I was up near the front of the action. This year, nearer the back, I saw a striking number of families with young children and what looked like novice cyclists who wanted to join in.
Supporters stretched back further than could be seen at the gathering point, the Meadows in Edinburgh."
