CTC's monthly round-up of cycle campaigning news
Contents Summary: 

From the Editor

Encouraging more people to enjoy the benefits of cycling is wrapped up in road safety; and road safety in turn depends to a large extent on how strongly the legal system defends cyclists from bad driving - hence the launch of CTC's new Road Justice campaign and website (see headline below).

As mentioned in the last CycleDigest, the e-petition urging the Government to implement the recommendations of the 'Get Britain Cycling' report has done well - and news has just come in that it will soon be the subject of a debate in Parliament.

Don't stop getting people to sign it, though! It needs to make the biggest impression possible on politicians, most immediately the Chancellor, who'll be setting out his proposals for public spending in the Comprehensive Spending Review on 26 June. Cycling is, after all, an excellent investment - as our topical briefing on cycling and the economy explains.

By the way, if you haven't done so already, you can subscribe directly to the CycleDigest - and do pass the link on to anyone else you think might be interested.
