Safer roads cyclethis weekend
East Perthshire residents are invited to take part in a campaign cycle ride on Saturday, April 1, to highlight the need for safe cycling routes between Alyth, Blairgowrie and Coupar Angus.
The ABC campaign cycle also aims to raise awareness of the need for safer roads for all road users.
It is being organised by the Coupar Angus Cycling Hub which, in collaboration with the We Walk We Cycle We Vote group, is keen to get candidates standing for office in the local government elections in May to see the issues for themselves.
The event will also give candidates a chance to talk to cyclists to get an idea of what is needed and what is already being done.
The April 1 ride will start at the Cross in the centre of Coupar Angus at 10am and participants will cycle in one big group to the Wellmeadow Cafe in the centre of Blairgowrie.There will be an option to cycle further after refreshments at the Wellmeadow Cafe, which will give people more time to talk to local candidates
Organisers are keen to get as many people along as possible.
