Quoted @modacitylife

Contrary to popular belief, hospitals treat hundreds of non-emergency patients each day, for whom cycling would be much easier than walking, driving, or public transport. This is the patient bicycle parking at Delft General Hospital on a Friday morning. The staff park elsewhere.

Compare and contrast with @NHS_Lothian Edinburgh Royal Infirmary - great cycle paths to the hospital but bike parking haphazard, not signed, not prominent and not enough of it - easy to fix!

MPs in England want to hear how bad #PavementParking is. Let's tell them.

Quoted @20sPlentyScot

Scotland can do 20mph limits for communities the inconsistent, postcode English way or a smarter, consistent national Scottish way. Like smoking bans this is a national value issue and should be set nationally.. @NicolaSturgeon https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/mark-beaumont-takes-20mph-campaign-up-a-gear-3s0v86v0v …

Yes - always a bit intimidating cycling in towns and cities with higher speed limits when we’ve got used to Edinburgh’s 20mph. More enforcement needed of course but we will get there - the driving culture can change.

Really looking forward to co-hosting ⁦@GretaThunberg⁩ in parliament next week She’ll bring powerful message to politicians that they cannot ignore either the rising seas or the rising citizens’ movements demanding action. ⁦⁦@Strike4Youth

Thanks for all your kind comments! Bob (the bike) now relaxing in the Grand Hotel in Tynemouth - having had a lovely sunny pedal here on NCN72 from Newcastle.

Close-passed on single lane roadworks on way to Waverley by woman driver who then stopped, got out, wagged her finger in my face, said I ‘wobbled’ and shouldn’t be on road if I ‘couldn’t go a bike’ - so sick of this dangerous entitlement egged on by commentators and media

Interesting that interview re policing of #ExtinctionRebellionLondon on #r4today made no mention of climate change at all - perhaps that’s coming later in programme?

My latest hobby is asking all drivers of idling vehicles to turn off their engines - responses have generally been ‘What for?’ - seems the message on air pollution not working in many areas.

Interesting chat with a @Scotambservice driver who had engine on outside busy hospital entrance (wasn’t emergency) - said electrical equipment had to be charged (but did turn engine off). Wondering what policy is? Exemptions? #airquality

Edinburgh Bus Station - still 30p to use toilets - but majority of people who travel by bus are on low incomes - surely time to follow lead of major railway stations and provide free toilet facilites 🚽🚌🚌
