An incomprehensible travesty of justice

Last week, an incomprehensible travesty of justice occurred in Kent. A driver who had sent and received 40 text messages whilst at the wheel and who then hit an 18-year-old cyclist on a straight stretch of road in broad daylight was cleared by a jury of causing the cyclist's death.

Berwick Cyclists

Exploring England and Scotland by bicycle in a day couldn't be easier, as Tony Houghton CTC member and founder of CTC group Berwick Cyclists explains in his new booklet 'Five Cycle Rides from Berwick upon Tweed'.
Berwick Cyclist's

CTC member Tony Houghton, founder of recently-formed Berwick Cyclists, an affiliate group of CTC,  has been championing cycling on both sides of the English/Scottish border for many years. The new group is setting a precedent in promoting cycling in the local area. A recent article in the local paper has elevated the group's profile and is making local cyclists sit up in their saddles and join in his rallying call to make cycling a larger part of the Berwick community and economy.
