Protected Bike Path for Union St


We had our protest! Thank you Aberdeen for your support. We got more than 250 signatures in 1 hour which is about 4 signatures per minute! If you couldn't make it on the day and still want to sign then please go to Foodstory or Bonobo Cafes in Aberdeen - they have copies of the petition.

It's also worth writing to your local councillor 



Where: King Edward Statue, Corner of Union St and Union Terrace, Aberdeen

When: Saturday 3rd February, 2018 from 11:30am - 12:30pm

Why?

Aberdeen City Council wants to pedestrianise the city centre but there are no plans for a protected bike path on Union St. The best way to get more people on bikes is to give them somewhere safe to ride. Union St is the heart of our city and it needs a protected bicycle path so that everyone of all ages and abilities can cycle in safety. Cycling is not an exclusive sport and should not be just for the young and fit who are brave enough to cycle next to buses.

We need 100 signatures from residents in Aberdeen City which we can submit to the petition's committee. We'll also be handing out We Walk, We Cycle, We Vote leaflets - http://walkcyclevote.scot/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/WCVBriefing.pdf

It's a paper petition so you'll need to come along if you want to sign it. Please join us!
