As PoP, we attend the cross-party parliamentary cycling group and have met the minister twice now to discuss our demands.
There are more voices too. When we started PoP there was no national cycling campaign for Scotland. Outwith Edinburgh, where Spokes have been quietly and doggedly pressing for a traffic-free network for years, campaigning was localised and deeply unambitious.
Even in Edinburgh cycling was seen as a difficult thing to sell and pragmatic campaigners were loath to ask for the only thing that is proven to bring about mass cycling: When thousands took to the streets at PoP — not just middle-aged men in lycra but families, older people, cyclists with disabilities, even people on foot — it seemed as if the political will to make real changes was there after all.
Many participants took the campaign home to their local areas and are increasingly engaged — and willing to ask for what they really want, not what's deemed politically expedient. Cyclists stopped accepting half- or even quarter measures: And when Cycling Scotland launched the "Niceway Code" — a campaign supposedly promoting mutual respect that instead perpetuated the myth that cyclists all run red lights — they were met with an unprecedented social media storm.
And yet, in many ways nothing has changed. Despite the proven benefits of cycling investment for health an increasingly urgent issue in Scotlandthe economy, congestion, pollution and climate change, it is still seen as an issue for a small — if increasingly vocal — minority. The increased spending is temporary and short term — making it harder for local authorities to make strategic plans to build coherent networks. And it is Scots who are paying the price.
Last year 13 cyclists died on Scotland's roads, the highest number in years, with two more deaths already this year, but these figures pale into insignificance compared with the thousands dying prematurely of heart disease, diabetes and stroke. We don't blame anyone, looking at the roads today, who decides that getting on their bike is not an option for them, whatever the impact on their health.
But we want to see a future Scotland inside or outside the United Kingdom where that choice is available to everyone, not just the quick and the brave. So that's why we're doing it again.
