CycleDigest October 2013
From the Editor
Congratulations to the Welsh Assembly for passing a law that should make forgetting about walking and cycling harder for all local authorities in Wales (see headlines).
We hope the new legislation will set an example for the rest of the UK in the future and, at the same time, demonstrate how vital it is to back up policy commitments with funding.
Sustainable transport can't do without the support of politicians and over the last few years cycling has certainly benefited from a dedicated cycling minister in Norman Baker MP. We wish him well for his new post in the Home Office, and look forward to working with his successor, Robert Goodwill MP.
Add your name to the Campaign for Better Transport's protest about the complete failure of Local Transport Bodies (England) to see how important it is to invest in cycling schemes. (See CBT's report on the issue in New Publications)
