ByCycle, the Perth and Kinross Cycle Campaign, leads regular rides around Perthshire to encourage cycling and publicise its benefit for the community, individuals and the environment. The voluntary organisation aims to ensure that public policy actively encourages cycling for work and leisure and makes full provision for it as part of overall planning and transport strategy. It achieves this via consultation, active representation to appropriate bodies and by liaising with other organisations with common interests in active travel by non-motorised users.
Quarterly meetings are open to all interested individuals or group representatives.

Next Scheduled Ride
Unfortunately our ride scheduled for Sunday 17th December was cancelled owing to the anticipated weather conditions in Dundee. Our next scheduled ride is Sunday 21st January 2018. Unfortunately, the forecast is not good with current predictions of more snow. However, we are tentatively proposing that we meet at Bell’s at 10 am and, depending upon the weather, settle on a destination. Please let me know whether you intend coming so that, if we need to cancel the ride by email, we can let you know and save unnecessary trips to Perth.
Contact Mike Simm to be included on the notification list.
