Thousands will take to the roads of Edinburgh once again as Pedal on Parliament announces its plans for the fifth edition of the annual event.
The campaign group has teamed up with umbrella campaign 'We Walk, We Cycle, We Vote' to urge Scottish Parliament to invest 10% of their transport budget into active travel, as opposed to the 1.8% slice of the budget which it currently receives.
The event on April 23 will see thousands ride and march the 1.5mile route from The Meadows to the Scottish Parliament building in Holyrood.
"This election is about the sort of Scotland we want to live in. With obesity rising, pollution choking our cities and increasingly destructive storms battering our shores, it's clear that we cannot continue simply building more roads and increasing our car dependency," said Sally Hinchcliffe, Pedal on Parliament organiser.
"Our politicians need to choose a different path and follow countries like Denmark and the Netherlands in creating people-friendly towns and cities where everyone can walk or cycle if they want to, something that will benefit us all.
"Pedal on Parliament's manifesto offers a clear path towards that end and we encourage politicians of all parties to adopt its aims."
