I am encouraged to see that some of Scotland’s politicians are taking action to try to improve conditions in the capital for cyclists. (your report, 3 June).
It is also encouraging to see Jim Eadie MSP recognises that safety is the biggest barrier to creating a greater cycling culture in Scotland, and I strongly support his calls to increase cycling rates and improve safety.
A wide range of measures is needed to make sure these changes are introduced and maintained, including car-free cycling routes, increased training for new drivers and the introduction of strict liability into civil law.
I believe it is important to have a partnership between changes to infrastructure and the law so that we can move towards a more balanced relationship for cyclists on the roads.
