The Guardian bike blog has mentioned pedal on parliament. This is good to get coverage all over the UK – our message is spreading!

Cyclists are being asked to ride their bikes through Edinburgh to the Scottish parliament building. The initiative has attracted widespread support, including backing from the round-the-world cyclist Mark Beaumont.

Brennan said:

Cycling should be as easy as riding a bike. But the vast majority of roads I would not want my children to cycle on and that’s wrong. I think the key demand has to be more finance for infrastructure and safety, bringing the levels up. We’re spending millions on short sections of motorway; all we’re asking for is a relatively small percentage of that to go on cycling infrastructure.

The Pedal on Parliament manifesto asks local and national politicians to sign up to a series of pledges, including proper funding for cycling, designing cycling into Scotland’s roads, integrating cycling into local transport strategies and solid research on cycling to inform and support policy making.
