Spokes Bike Breakfast – June 22

The excellent annual Spokes Bike Breakfast will be between 8-10am on Weds 22 June in the City Chamber quadrangle on Edinburgh’s High Street…

Please download the Bike Breakfast poster [pdf 244k] and print out any copies you can put up at work, local shops, or elsewhere.

As well as breakfast on your way to work, there will be our biggest ever range of stalls, councillors to lobby, police bike security coding and much more.     Transport Convenor Cllr Gordon Mackenzie is expected to give a short speech [probably around 8.45] doubtless mentioning a variety of initiatives now happening under Edinburgh’s Cycling Action Plan.

The summer Spokes mailout goes out on 4 June and all members should receive Spokes Bulletin 110 and poster copies soon after that.  The Bulletin features…

  • opportunities and the problems resulting from the election of the new majority SNP government – and what you can do to help …
  • actions you can take to ensure red surfacing throughout on Edinburgh’s planned Quality Bike Corridor from Mayfield/KB to Princes Street …
  • and to ensure a high quality A90 Edinburgh-Forth Bridge route …
  • and, as always, much more!!

If such issues concern you, read our Bulletin, then take the opportunity of the Bike Breakfast to put your concerns to the councillors who turn up – just ask around and you’ll soon find some!  There will also be a stall featuring the council’s consultation on the future of the canal and towpath [more details in the Spokes Bulletin].

The Spokes Bike Breakfast is part of National Bike Week.   For more events, see the NBW national website.
