Barriers to Cycling
Why are we campaigning?
To ask Dundee politicians and members of the public to sign up to our manifesto to make Dundee a cycle friendly city by tackling the barriers that prevent people of all ages and abilities from cycling the sort of journeys that make sense by bike.
What are we asking for?
- Increase funding for cycling in Dundee to 10% of the City Council’s transport budget.
- Design cycling for all ages and abilities into Dundee’s roads.
- Make 20 mph speed limit the default in residential areas.
- Cycling built into our local transport strategies.
- Better road traffic law and better enforcement.
- Tayside division of Police Scotland to run Operation Close Pass in Dundee to help create an environment where cycling is a safe and attractive transport option.
- Car Free Zones at Schools.
- Better connections for walking and cycling between the Waterfront to invite visitors into our great city and to let Dundee citizens access our new ‘living room’.
- Help tackle public health problems such as air pollution by making cycling an attractive everyday transport option.
- Secure cycle storage built into all new homes.
- Introduce traffic free days in Dundee City Centre.
Pop up Pedal on Parliament Dundee Event is organised by Dundee Cycling Forum
Pedalling to make Dundee a cycle-friendly city! For our first PoP event in Dundee, we are having a ride round Slessor Gardens for an hour on Sunday 28th April starting at 1pm. If the weather is good we are then going to have a picnic afterwards. There will be led feeder rides from Broughty Ferry (cycle counter) and Invergowrie (where NCN77 comes off-road just up from the underpass at Burnside Road) meeting at 12.00. There will also be a Dr Bike at the Slessor Gardens ride from 12.30 to 14.30. The Slessor Gardens route is all off road shared path, is suitable for a family cycle and will highlight the need to connect the Waterfront to the City Centre as well as the other points in our PoP manifesto.
