Active Schools are running “Learn to Ride a Bike” sessions for P1s and P2s this term as well as “Cycling Journeys” for P6 and P7. Check out Wisepay for more information.
In 2012, 3000 cyclists, young and old, pedalled on the Scottish Parliament to call for safer cycling for everyone, and to make Scotland a cycle-friendly nation. Pedal on Parliament 2 will be the second of our bike rides on Holyrood – and a fun day out for all the family. Although we’re making a serious point about making cycling safer and easier, the day itself will be light-hearted. Starting from the Meadows, on traffic free roads through the Old Town of Edinburgh to the Scottish Parliament, it’s open to all ages with or without bikes.
Our desire is to encourage our politicians to invest in safe cycling infrastructure to dramatically improve the numbers of children who cycle to and from school, and we hope that this may be something you’d be willing to support
If you know of parents that are already organising a group from your school, we’d encourage them to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to help us put them in touch with other local groups.
We have the support of a number of cycling organisations and sportspeople. Just today, as he announced his retirement, Sir Chris Hoy re-iterated his support for the event and indicated his desire to attend!
