Dunblane on 16th September 2012. Pedal on Postbox was organised for 2:30pm and the place was rather busy.

Was all that for Pedal on Postbox?

Actually, no. It turns out that some bloke who is a bit handy with a bat and ball used to live here, and he was visiting.

Anyone recognise him?

So, after a chat with the local Superintendent on Saturday morning Pedal On Boxbox – Dunblane was rescheduled for 4pm. By then the crowds had dispersed and all that was left was a small queue for photos by the postbox.

Those of us who had turned up had our photo taken by one of the other groups, with our letters to the four councillors for Clackmannanshire North, and the four councillors for Bridge of Allan and Dunblane.

Then a couple of guys turned up a bit later. One of them was Green councillor Mark Ruskell who wanted to show his support and have a chat about cycling in the area. He encouraged us to badger Active Stirling about cycle training in the local schools. I gave them postcards and we had another photo taken.

We then went our seperate ways. A turn out of seven including my family. From small acorns…

Now to work on my cycling version of “500 miles” for the next Pedal on Parliament.
