We are in touch with campaigners for the WeWalkWeCycleWeVote movement, which is an umbrella organisation representing the whole cycling movement.
We have met with Transform Scotland who report on and research infrastructure and signage in Scotland’s principal cities. They are currently researching the possibility of a segregated cycleway into Perth alongside Dunkeld Road.
The Tayside Challenge
This charity Sportive is organised by Perth Kinnoull Rotary Club working in partnership with Malawi Fruits. They are offering a memorable and enjoyable cycling challenge in some of Scotland’s best scenery while raising funds to support local Perthshire charities and the international charity Malawi Fruits. Mark Beaumont is promoting the event this year. Mark will be setting off the cyclists and then riding the route, moving around the field and chatting with those taking part.
