Spokes is the Lothian Cycle Campaign - a non party political voluntary organisation, founded in 1977, and now with a membership of over 1000. SPOKES has a long history of effective campaigning for better conditions for cyclists, especially in Edinburgh and the Lothians. More in our What is Spokes flyer...
In our first decades the needs of motorists were the overwhelming priority for government public expenditure on transport. Although public transport investment has improved substantially, investment to provide safe and welcoming conditions for cycling and walking still trails woefully behind. SPOKES believes that councils and government should have an overall transport strategy in which cyclists, pedestrians and public transport genuinely come first - and that includes both funding and roadspace.
