Andy Arthur of Magnificent Octopus has done us some fab designs for Pedal on Parliament. These are now available as JPGs for downloading and printing as posters and as handlebar flyers to attach to bikes’ bars or top tubes. You can also pick up pre-printed flyers for distribution from a number of handy pickup points. You can show your support online with a Twibbon or badge. And you can also find some images of the last POP for use in media releases and other publicity purposes, as well as an archive of older POP posters for the nostalgists amongst you.
Our new poster is here and available for download as a PDF (7MB) which is suitable for poster and flyer printing. For a smaller file, download the JPG versionwhich is still printable, or for web use you may prefer this smaller version.
Handlebar flyers are a really easy way to reach a lot of cyclists without having to spend all day accosting them as they whiz past you, perfect for the shyer campaigner who knows where all the bikes hang out. You’ll need a printer – just print the sheets out, cut them up and you can quickly and easily attach them to any likely bike you come across. They won’t blow away in the wind or cause too much of a nuisance and at eight to a page, it won’t cost too much in printing costs either. They work as well in black and white as in colour.
Here’s a little guide on how to use them.

Want to wear your heart on your sleeve? You can show your support for POP with a ‘twibbon’ on your avatar on Facebook and Twitter.
You can also add a badge to your website or blog. How to do it will vary from site to site – but the following html should work (this has only been tested in WordPress, please let us know if you have instructions for other commonly used platforms:
<p>I'm pedalling on Parliament on April 23rd #pop2016</p>
<a href="http://pedalonparliament.org/"> <img alt="I'm Pedalling on Parliament on April 23rd" width="150" src="http://pedalonparliament.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/2016-Poster-F_smaller.jpg" class="aligncenter" /></a>
