    How about letting the CTC know?

    That’s an ace idea. They’ll send in Jack Bauer.

    I just spoke to my local CTC personage and they’ve informed me that the best way to get the enforcement dept at the council involved is to contact my local councilor.

    So I will be doing that next! I want it moved!

    Some sort of ‘Critical Mass’ with lots of cyclists all turning up at once and locking their bikes to the patio furniture and any other available bit of pipework in and aroudn the store (with the local press and a local councillor there) might get some momentum behind the thing?

    Write to your MSP too – you’d be surprised how effective our elected representatives can be at getting action out of large organisations.

    Have you contacted Spokes? They probably have better contacts locally than the CTC.

    I have to go to Asda to post the bearings, at the end of a long day/working week I then have to kick chairs and tables out of the way.

    I only kick the chairs the tables I push πŸ˜‰

    kaesae – have a look at @carltonreid twitter feed – one of your pics is generating some activty/comment. Might be worth contacting him via email – he’s got a bit of a track record of championing the cyclist.

    Cool. Not cycling enough.

    Still looking for a good folding/lightweight shovel πŸ˜‰

    And I need to chat to you about bearings πŸ™‚

    Another lead for you to follow: http://citycyclingedinburgh.info/bbpress/

    A few “activists” on that forum who might be happy to help you apply some pressure with Asda.

    It had nothing to do with Kaesae actually, pure marketing, summer is now officially over in Edinburgh!

    Glad they moved it, I’m busy and could do without having to spend my time sorting shit like this out.

    To be fair asda aren’t so bad, still stupid to block access to the racks, but shit happens!

    Thanks for all the info and support!

    I can see why you wanted it moving, the dozens of bikes parked up in that picture would have been all over the carpark causing a right mess otherwise …….

    Oh…… Hang on πŸ˜‰

    I was in Edinburgh last week, are you sure the reason for moving the furniture was to dig up that part of the city aswell?

    Fantastic result and oh so funny, i thought at first it asda to be a joke thread, i bet the manager went off his trolley when told to move the decking, and bet he asked where to.
