Sat 22 Apr 2017 - Family Event - Pedal on Parliament - Inverness


Sat 22 Apr 2017
   Pedal on Parliament (POP) is an established annual event in Edinburgh.
   This year similar events have also been organised for Aberdeen, Glasgow and Inverness.
   The POP Inverness event was initiated by local cyclists Mick Heath and Mark Falconer.
   Highland Cycle Campaign has helped with the organisation and will take part on the day.

   Due to a short time scale, the event has been publicised by word of mouth and social media.

   By chance, it takes place on the day before the Etape Loch Ness 2017.
   This is a mixed blessing but on balance should be mutually beneficial.
