Saturday 31st October – 15:00 (note new time) outside the Perth Concert Hall – more details (Facebook event). The ride will be followed by a short photo opportunity and discussion with Sarah Boyack and Claudia Beamish at 5:15pm outside the conference venue.
Join us and delegates to the Labour Party conference on a short ride to explore the best and worst of Perth’s cycling infrastructure. This will be the fourth of our party conference rides when we’ll be inviting politicians and local campaigners to come together and see and discuss the problems and opportunities for active travel for themselves. After exploring the delights of Perth’s finest cycling infrastructure, we will return to the conference venue for the close of the programme to meet Sarah Boyack and Claudia Beamish MSPs for a short photo opportunity.
The Perth Bike Station will be joining us and taking the opportunity to survey local cyclists on the day – come along before or after (from 2:30 pm) and get a free set of LED lights if you help them with their survey.
If you can’t make it, please contact your local party and let them know you’d appreciate it if some of them attended.
For those delegates who cannot spare the time for a ride, we’d be delighted to meet them as the conference closes at 5:15pm, so we can discuss some of the barriers to active travel and how our pledges would help
