Pedal on Parliament

Wow! Double Wow! Wow, wow, WOW!

A little while back I had an idea. I've had plenty of those over the years and most have come to nothing, or not very much. However, I had an idea a little while back, this one, that seems to have gone big time. It looks like it is actually going to happen.

We are going to Pedal On Parliament on the 28th April!!


I'd love to claim that it was all my own work, that I've worked my little cotton socks off setting this up and organising this all myself. Actually I wouldn't want to claim that. I have had the incredible fortune of working with a fabulous band of people, who happen to cycle as well, and who took my crazy idea, and have turned it into a reality.

Oh. Wait a minute. It hasn't actually happened yet. We have only set up a web site, a twiiter feed and a facebook page, written an amazing manifesto, built up a good level of support already, got some amazing graphics etc. Actually a lot has been done, but we still have a long way to go.

This is where you come in. We need you to support us. Visit the website. Read the manifesto. Set the date aside in your diary. Contact your MSP's, MP's and councillors, spread the word, and most importantly.....turn up! (Oh and sign up for this Facebook page if you use Facebook!)

With your help we can change the landsape of Scotlands roads. Not just for the benefit of cyclists, for the benefit of everyone.

Look at how much has been done by 7 or 8 concerned cyclists. Just imagine how much we could achieve if we all turned up on the 28th April in Edinburgh.
