CycleDigest (No. 70):
- Leadership, lorries and cycling lessons - cyclists explain cycling safety to MPs: what did Jon Snow (CTC President and broadcaster), Josie Dew (CTC Vice-President and writer) and James Harding (Editor of The Times) say to the Commons Transport Select Committee about cycling safety? And what do we think should happen next? (pp 1 & 2).
- SeeMeSaveMe.com: Roadpeace, the national charity for road crash victims, has launched a new website to tackle lorry danger, highlighting good practice, providing campaigning tools and support for people affected by these crashes. Find out why this is so important, and how to support the See Me Save Me campaign (p3).
- Segregation debate - CTC's survey results: where and when are well designed, dedicated facilities for cyclists a good idea? That's what we recently asked in a survey and the results are intriguing. What do you think you are? 'Hardened sceptic', 'softened sceptic' or a 'segregation enthusiast'? How much support does your point of view have? Do you still agree with yourself? (pp 4 & 5).
- Blindingling obvious - drivers' vision needs looking at: unfortunately, the system that regulates whether or not we are fit to drive fails to acknowledge that we are oblivious to a gradual loss of vision. CTC's Chris Peck explains why this is a serious road safety issue for cyclists and pedestrians, and how crucial it is for the Government to take action. (p6)
- Llandudno - a town like Alice? Llandudno prides itself on its association with the author Lewis Carroll, because the 'real' Alice of his books spent holidays there. Roy Spilsbury, CTC's local campaigner, wonders if the space and time distortions and playing card characters seen in 'Alice Through the Looking Glass' has had a strange influence on decisions about cycling on the resort's promenade. (p7)
- PLUS! Diary dates, event news and much more.
