Event description

Cycling UK in Scotland and Pedal on Parliament hosted Scotland’s Cycling and Sustainable Travel Hustings.

If you didn't manage to join us at the online hustings, you can still watch the event. Wherever you live in Scotland, hear what parties have to say about the role of cycling, walking and public transport in tackling the challenges of the climate emergency and post-pandemic recovery.

We gave you the opportunity to question the transport spokespersons for the five main parties at Holyrood about their party’s policies for cycling and sustainable transport in Scotland. 



The event was chaired by Catriona Stewart, chief reporter of the Glasgow Times & columnist for The Herald.

  • Michael Matheson, Scottish National Party, Cabinet Secretary for transport, infrastructure and connectivity
  • Graham Simpson, Scottish Conservatives spokesperson for transport, connectivity and infrastructure
  • Alex Rowley, Scottish Labour spokesperson for transport, connectivity and infrastructure
  • Mark Ruskell, Scottish Green Party spokesperson for climate, energy, environment, food and farming
  • Jane Ann Liston, Scottish Liberal Democrats spokesperson (a late replacement for Carole Ford, spokesperson for transport, connectivity and infrastructure)


  • First shown Tuesday 20 April, 7pm - 8:30pm 
  • Watch back on GoToWebinar 
  • Includes Q&A with the guests
  • Free to attend/watch

Cycling UK in Scotland campaigns for policies and investment which will enable more people to benefit from riding a bike. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to ride a bike in order to live a healthy, active and low-carbon lifestyle.

Pedal on Parliament (PoP) is a grassroots volunteer-led campaign pushing for better, safer and more inclusive cycling conditions for everyone of all ages and abilities in Scotland. Find out more about their election-related day of action on 24 April online.
