Current Campaigns

These are CTC's most high profile campaigns. Historic and other campaigns are below.

Space for Cycling logo
The national Space for Cycling campaign aims to create the conditions where anyone can cycle, anywhere.
The Cyclists Defence Fund
The Cyclists’ Defence Fund was set up by CTC in 2001 to defend the rights of cyclists. Its remit covers all aspects of cycling and the law.
Lorries pose a serious risk to cyclists in urban areas
CTC believes that the danger and intimidation from lorries, especially in urban areas, has to be tackled now.
Road Justice supported by Slater & Gordon Lawyers
The Road Justice campaign seeks to change driver attitudes and the approach of the law to bad driving.
The All Party Parliamentary Cycling Group gets Britain cycling
CTC, with Sustrans, British Cycling and other cycling organisations, is campaigning for the Government to show strong leadership to Get Britain Cycling.
Cycletopia includes 15 real life examples of good schemes to promote cycling
CTC's Cycletopia is made up of real life examples of what can be done to make Britain's towns and cities more cycle friendly, combined in a single image.
Fillthathole.org.uk
Potholes are hazardous to cyclists while rough road surfaces make cycling more uncomfortable and requires more energy to ride over. Fill that hole allows you to report potholes anywhere in the country directly to the highway authority.
20 mph
Lower speeds lead to safer streets which are easier for cycling and walking. Reducing the speed limit to 20 mph is one of the simplest ways to reduce road casualties and make streets feel safer.

Other Campaigns

Cycle helmets: the evidence
CTC wants to keep helmets an optional choice. Forcing - or strongly encouraging - people to wear helmets deters people from cycling and undermines the public health benefits of cycling. This campaign seeks to educate policy makers and block misguided attempts at legislation.
Royal Mail cycle delivery
In 2010, the Royal Mail decided to scrap their fleet of 24,000 bicycles in favour of trolleys and light vans. Only a few thousand are now left and they will all be phased out by 2014. CTC objected and still objects because it's putting other road users at greater risk and is adding to emissions.
New Vision for Cycling
A doubling of cycling use in 10 years, coupled with a halving the in risks of cycling, would generate economic benefits of £3.5 billion and save 600,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually.
