On the morning of Wednesday 8 September 2010, we delivered around 700 letters of protest from CTC members to Royal Mail's new Chief Executive, Moya Greene, asking her to reconsider the decision to remove cycles from the Royal Mail transport fleet.

The letters were delivered using a combination of bikes, including the Pashley Mailstar, one of the range of bikes currently used by Royal Mail. In addition, CTC also used a Danish cargo trike, the carrying capacity of which would solve the problem of the current fleet which cannot manage large amounts of parcels.

A representative of Royal Mail accepted the letters on behalf of Moya Greene. A meeting between Ms Greene and the All Party Cycling Group will be held on the 22nd September.
