We’re really excited to let you know that we are back! This year, 10 years after we first did it, we will be doing our first ‘classic PoP’ in several years – that’s a mass family-friendly cycle from the Meadows to the Scottish Parliament to send a loud message to politicians that it’s time to deliver on their promises. It’s time to make Scotland a cycle-friendly country.

Please put it in your diary (or phone calendar!) now: Saturday 23 April 2022.

One of our founders, Sally Hinchcliffe, has written an article reflecting on how far we’ve come, yet how much further we have to go. We feel strongly that it’s time to deliver, and that’s largely down to local councils. We want every candidate across Scotland to hear our message loud and clear – This Machine Fights Climate Change and it’s Time To Deliver.

We’re in the process of updating our website and social media, as well as confirming the route with the council, and will let you know when we can share more information. We’ll need lots of help to have a successful event – from distributing flyers to writing to politicians, organising feeder rides to making banners. 

For now, we just ask one thing – put the date in your diary (do it now…) and start telling your friends. We can’t wait to see you in person again and spread our message far and wide.
