THOUSANDS of cyclists pedalled to the Scottish Parliament yesterday calling for safer cycling on the country’s roads.

Families with small children were joined by politicians and marchers for today’s event in Edinburgh, organised by the Pedal On Parliament group campaigning for more funding invested in cycling and lower speed limits in areas used by cyclists.

It was the third mass bike ride from the Meadows down the Royal Mile to be held by the group, with the families of cyclists killed in recent years joining in - including the family of Andrew McNicoll, who died in 2012.
