CycleDigest May 2013
From the Editor
Welcome to the May issue of CycleDigest. No apologies for mentioning the 'Get Britain Cycling' e-petition four times (this is the first mention) - it's doing very well, but still needs more people to sign it. Our headline below explains why and how.
Improved infrastructure, justice for victims of collisions and lorries are never far from our minds, and the stories we've covered this month reflect this. So does our 'Get Britain Cycling' campaign - I hope you've signed the e-petition as a result of my first mention, but if not, please do so now and encourage your friends to do the same!
The CycleDigest is a free resource for anyone with a voluntary or professional interest in cycling. New subscribers are always welcome at www.ctc.org.uk/cycledigest - if you sign up to that, you'll receive a bulletin letting you know when the latest issue is online.
With best wishes
- You have until 31 May 2013 to use CTC’s draft letter to write to the Lord Advocate in Scotland calling for a review of the lenient sentence handed down to the driver who killed Audrey Fyfe, a 75-year-old cyclist in Edinburgh (pictured right, with her daughter Aileen Brown).
- Add your name to the e-petition that’s calling on the Government to implement the recommendations of the Get Britain Cycling report. The more signatures it gets, the more the Government should sit up and take notice!
