Why Pedal on Parliament?

To ask all of Scotland’s politicians, from all parties, to sign up to our manifesto to make Scotland a cycle friendly country for people of all ages and abilities.

What are we asking for?

  • Proper funding for active travel – 10% of the transport budget nationally  and locally
  • Cycling for all ages and all abilities designed into Scotland’s roads
  • Safer speeds where people live, work and play
  • Cycling built in to our local transport strategies
  • Better road traffic law and better enforcement
  • Safer HGVs around cyclists and pedestrians
  • A strategic and joined-up programme of training for road users
  • The right research supporting good decision-making and policy
