Central Scotland needs a traffic-free bike track!

This petition had 1,536 supporters

Linlithgow Community Development Trust plan to build a 1km cycle circuit in Linlithgow but they need the support of West Lothian Council to do this. The track will provide a safe racing, training, and recreational cycling area for everyone across Scotland to use. 

Please sign this petition to help persuade West Lothian Council to help it get built.

I am 14 years old, a keen cyclist for the West Lothian Clarion Cycling Club and there aren't a lot of safe roads nearby. A car has caused me to fall off when it pulled out of a junction while I was riding by. It nearly hit me and I fell off, leaving a big gash in my leg.

I am really hoping the track gets built because it would really give me and my club mates a safe place to ride and train where our parents aren't worried about us getting hit by cars. I think it would also promote cycling, and make cycling more popular as a sport as well as a form of transport.

The location is to the West of the Leisure Centre and the project also includes a skate park and athletics area.

There is no purpose built cycle circuit in Scotland. This track would be used by cyclists not just from Linlithgow but from across West Lothian and further afield from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling.

Please sign my petition and help this facility get built
