Cycling road crash victims and campaigners visit over 30 Police and Crime Commissioners to call for 'Road Justice'

Today, (July 11th ) campaigners and victims of cycling road crashes are meeting with Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) across England and Wales to hand in CTC, the national cycling charity’s Road Justice report.

CTC launched the Road Justice campaign, which is sponsored by Slater & Gordon Lawyers, to urge the police, prosecutors and courts to put policies and practices in place which demonstrate that bad driving is taken seriously and actively discouraged. This document examines the role of roads policing in keeping cyclists safe and ensuring irresponsible drivers are brought to justice.

Every police force, serious collision investigation unit and road safety partnership has also been sent the report.

Chilterns Cycle Rides For All

Come along and enjoy free led rides in the Chilterns this summer!
Chiltern cyclists

Cycle Chilterns have organised a series of led rides this summer open to all. In particular, they are great for families, people getting back into cycling or those who just prefer to ride in a group.

Led by qualified and experienced ride leaders, the rides will follow many of the local quiet country lanes, catering to the needs of the group, so no-one is left behind. The group usually stops for a relaxed coffee and there's always time to chat while cycling. The emphasis is on fun and enjoyment!
