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
A week to encourage all schools to get cycling. Tips, guides and further information available from Sustrans.
The annual week of cycling-related events. Offers something for everyone - from families, schools and companies, to seasoned cyclists and those who have never cycled before. This year, Bike Week is asking the nation to dig out their bikes, get back on the saddle and fall in love with cycling all over again.
Part of the Olympic Legacy, this mass-participation cycling festival offers four separate events for professionals and non-pros. If you’d like to be part of cycling history, volunteer to become a marshal on the London-Surrey 100 & Classic on 4th August.
