Saturday 28 April 2012: Pedal on Parliament
So having struggled for a blip this week, and resorted to pictures of objects in the house more than once, a surfeit of possible blips today on the cyclists protest ride in central Edinburgh. The riders - I heard someone say there were three thousand, there were certainly hundreds - were protesting about safer roads for cyclists after two deaths in the past year on the city's roads. The mother of one of those killed was present and spoke movingly at the rally at the Scottish Parliament. This is the start, with the whole of Middle Meadow Walk filled with cyclists.
