Round-the-world cyclist Mark Beaumont is backing a mass cycle on the Scottish Parliament to demand safer roads for bikes.

Grassroots campaign group Pedal on Parliament is urging cyclists from across Scotland to join it in the event on April 28th.

Its members have enlisted celebrity backing in the form of Mr Beaumont, while former world individual pursuit champion Graeme Obree has also been approached about lending his support.
