We hope that like many of us here at ACF you are excited about the prospect of our second very own North-East ‘Pedal on Parliament’ ride taking place next Saturday, 23 April, starting from Hazlehead Drive at 12 noon. We will ride gently down to assemble outside Marishcal College where we hope to present our case to various City and Shire Councillors, and possibly some candidate MSPs too.
If you took part in the ride in 2015, the arrangements are just the same. If you are new then you will be especially welcome and we are certainly hoping to exceed the 100+ riders who joined in last year.
If you don’t know the route, a detailed guide is available. But do please remember that the ride is on open roads with no special traffic management in place, so is only likely to be suitable for confident cyclists. Anyone who is unable to join the ride is still very welcome to meet us at Marischal College and add their voice to the campaign.
After the gathering at Marischal, photo opportunities etc a number of us intend to carry on the discussion at 6 Degrees North – a continental-style bar just round the corner on Littlejohn St. They serve food and coffee as well as a fantastic range of craft beers. Unfortunately, due to Licensing restrictions, under 18s are not permitted in the bar.
A risk assessment for the ride is also available should you wish to read it.
