Event Details

Please arrive at 17:30 for 18:00 start.

Nicholas Oddy tells us how cycling in Scotland got off to an uncertain start that as in other countries has become shrouded in myth. When liberated from boneshakers and penny-farthings, cyclists emerged as style-conscious but showed a reluctance to engage with transport policy-makers and so went on to be marginalised by motorists. When a revival came about in modern times, it has put health and fitness above cycling as a mode of transport.

There is no charge for this event and no booking required. A light buffet will be available.

This event has been organised by CILT and IRO members are welcome to attend. Please visit: www.ciltuk.org.uk/ContactUs.aspx
