Cycling as a form of transport needs to be seen in the wider context of local transport as a whole, and at our meeting on Monday 8 April Professor Iain Docherty will set the context by describing current trends and policies in local transport as a whole. Jim Eadie MSP will outline cycling developments at Scottish level, followed by Cllr Jim Orr describing the Edinburgh situation. There will then be a panel discussion, with questions from you the audience, chaired by Paul Tetlaw.
Venue: Augustine United Church, George IV Bridge, Edinburgh
Time: 7.30 – open 6.45 for coffee, stall, exhibition and chat
