SPOKES Spring Meeting 23 March 2020

Spokes Spring public meeting, Monday 23 March

Local Bike Campaigning

More and more people are fighting for safer conditions to get around by bike – for the environment and climate, for health, for towns and cities not dominated by the car and for a happier life.

Our public meeting and our new factsheet tell the many and varied stories of people doing just that – and how we can all follow their example.

The public meeting will hear from a wide range of people involved in very different ways in local bike campaigning – to be followed by a one-hour Q/A and panel discussion chaired by Spokes member Cllr Scott Arthur.

Stella Thomson Spokes South Edinburgh
Henry Whaley Roseburn support group
