Consultation Extra: Active Travel for Everyone event in Edinburgh, 19 October

In Digest 43, Item 2.1, we told you about a forthcoming conference to discuss and progress active travel issues for all. It is to be held in Edinburgh on 19 October and here are the details and the booking link from the Walk, Cycle, Vote organisers:

Do get there if you are interested to ensure that those of us who travel without private motor vehicle assistance do not suffer from divide and rule policies where people walking are pitted against people cycling or sighted people against those with impaired sight etc. If you have ever wondered how people such as the woman in the photo or someone in a wheelchair manage to get round our towns and cities without even being able to see there’s no dropped kerb just where one is needed then this is the day out you need in Edinburgh – and it’s free.
