As you may be aware, the Get Britain Cycling report is published today, and the Times has started a petition to make sure its recommendations don’t get kicked into the long grass.
Although most of this report relates to England rather than Scotland, it should mean politicians across the UK raise their game promoting cycling. The more people sign up, the more it shows that the desire is there to make cycling a safe and practical option for everyone, not just those who cycle now. We urge all our members to sign it, and to ask their friends and family to sign it too.
Added to next month’s Pedal on Parliament, we have a real opportunity to show our governments – Scottish and UK wide – that the political will is there.
