We came, we saw, we pedalled on Parliament

On 26 April 2014, thousands of people from across Scotland (and further afield!) descended upon the Scottish Parliament to show politicians that more investment is needed for cycling and active travel.
Pedal on Parliament

Pedal on Parliament is only in its third year, but already its momentum and influence is being felt across Scotland. I attended for the first time last year as a relatively new cyclist and had my eyes opened to the sheer diversity of cycling and how this most humble of things can generate positive shock waves throughout society.

Ride, Cake and Chat!

CTC’s Cycling Development Officer in Scotland is a multi-tasker with a mission – to support women to ride, eat cake and chat. For the record, she’s typing this whilst drinking tea and thinking about what to cook for dinner...
Cycling ladies

I saw in the news this week that British women are the multi-tasking champions of Europe. No wonder, then, that Belles on Bikes is proving so popular with the women of Scotland. Our strapline - ‘ride, cake, chat’ - of actions isn’t meant to be done simultaneously, but clearly it could be!

Boy stuff: cycling, the prostate and erectile dysfunction

Riding a bicycle can aggravate the prostate and cause other health problems in men. The design of the standard bicycle seat can rub against the prostate during the pedalling process. A comforatble saddle is key.

Prostate anatomy and problems in cyclists

A healthy human prostate is classically said to be slightly larger than a walnut. It surrounds the urethra just below the urinary bladder. The prostate can enlarge to the point where urination becomes difficult.
