The elections may be over for a while, but #walkcyclevote continues! With the Scottish Government ‘Programme for Government’ announcement in September doubling the active travel budget it has never been more important to work together to ensure that investment pays off.

We Walk, We Cycle, We Vote campaign and Go Bike are organising a FREE training day in Glasgow on Saturday 3 March at The Whisky Bond, 2 Dawson Road, Glasgow, G4 9SS.

The training day is an opportunity for anyone who wants to campaign for cycling, walking and more liveable towns and cities to meet, share ideas and learn. It should offer something for everyone from those just starting out to experienced campaigners.

The elections may be over for a while, but #walkcyclevote continues! With the Scottish Government ‘Programme for Government’ announcement in September doubling the active travel budget it has never been more important to work together to ensure that investment pays off.

For some of us, that means carrying off the balancing of supporting new (and possibly controversial) initiatives from the powers that be – while still continuing to hold them to account. For others, it means making sure our local areas don’t miss out or get left behind in the dash for active travel money. Either way, campaigners old and new will need new skills and new ideas as we move into a potentially exciting future.

For more information check out the Eventbrite page or the Facebook event page.

walkcyclevoteIn the run up to the Scottish Local Government elections which will be held on Thursday 4 May we are once again supporting the We Walk, We Cycle, We Vote campaign.

We Walk, We Cycle We Vote is a collaborative partnership of over 50 walking and cycling organisations across Scotland which have come together to put active travel on the agenda for the Scottish Local Government elections, which offers the chance to transform Scotland into a healthier, wealthier, happier country.

The campaign is asking all candidates if they will support the following three asks:

  • Investment: Provide sustained, long term investment in both cycling and walking, reaching 10% of the transport budget
  • Infrastructure: Build and maintain dedicated cycling infrastructure suitable for people of all ages and abilities
  • Local action: To solve the main local barriers to active travel, as identified by residents and businesses

walkcyclevoteWe Walk, We Cycle, We Vote campaign is organising a training day in Edinburgh on Saturday 26 November and it’s FREE.

The training day is an opportunity for anyone who wants to campaign for cycling, walking and more liveable towns and cities to meet, share ideas and learn. It should offer something for everyone from those just starting out to experienced campaigners.

The aim of the training day is to engage with local campaign groups, individual campaigners and council members to share expertise and ideas and get involved in the Walk Cycle Vote local election campaign in 2017. The Space for Cycling campaign will be at the day to present the tools and resources available through the campaign.

Recent events in East Dunbartonshire with the Bears Way and South Ayrshire with Holmston Road have made it very clear that we need local councillors who support active travel and who are prepared to make space for walking and cycling in our towns and cities.

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.

Road Safety Week is the UK’s biggest road safety event, coordinated annually by the charity Brake and involving thousands of schools, organisations and communities each year.

Road Safety Week aims to inspire communities to take action on road safety and promote life-saving messages during the Week and beyond. It also provides a focal point for professionals working in road safety to boost awareness and engagement in their work.

As part of We Go Pedal we will be running a couple of Road Safety Week events focused on cycling

There are loads of fantastic resources on the Road Safety Week website to help you get involved in the campaign. You can also share comments, pictures and clips via the Facebook page, or on Twitter using #RoadSafetyWeek and #drivelesslivemore.
