POP_2016-Poster_212x300Pedal On Parliament 2016 is taking place at 12 noon on Saturday 23rd April. This will be the fifth mass bike rides on Holyrood (and not just a bike ride – you can always Pedestrian on Parliament) – and this year will be particularly important because it’s the Holyrood elections.

This year Pedal On Parliament joining forces with We Walk, We Cycle We Vote and many other active travel organisations to present a united front to our politicians and to put active travel on the agenda for the next five years in Scotland.

Pedal On Parliament aims to make the serious point about making cycling safer and easier however the day itself will be light-hearted. The pace will be slow and easy for people to keep up – however little their legs may be. It will be non-confrontational and we will be co-operating fully with the police and the council and all the relevant authorities. POP16 have arranged that the roads will be closed during the ride itself.

The ride will start at 12 noon from the Meadows, with feeder rides coming in from all across Scotland. The route will be the same as the last four POPs, including the iconic Royal Mile, and ending – as you might expect – at the parliament building at Holyrood.
