Pedal on Parliament 2014

28th April 2014

Pedal on Parliament took place on Saturday 26th April 2014. Over 4000 people rode to the Scottish Parliament at Holyrood in Edinburgh, to ask for improved conditions for cycling.  

The movement wants proper funding for cycling, cycling to be designed into Scotland's roads, slower speeds where people live, work and play, and improved road traffic law enforcement.

The Herald reported that one of the speeches was made by 11 year old Kyle Thomas, who said, 'I believe that cycling is the future for Scotland. Cycling down the High Street I thought to myself that this is how cycling should be, there wasn't a single car on the road but lots of cyclists as it should be.'

Politicians also made speeches, including Transport Minister Keith Brown, Green MSP Alison Johnstone, LibDem Willie Rennie, and Labour's Claudia Beamish, according to road.cc.
