Why should cyclists use Twitter?

Some say Twitter is a waste of time. It is, however, the world’s largest global conversation and is a very effective way for cyclists to network, campaign and communicate.

Twitter is an information network made up of 140-character messages called 'Tweets'. It's an easy way to discover the latest news related to subjects you care about, and you can add pictures and videos too.

Dr Bike volunteer opportunities

CTC Dr Bike Volunteers, St Pauls, London
Do you know how to change an inner tube or bike tyre, tighten a brake cable, oil a chain or adjust a seat? If so, you have the skills to help support thousands of cyclists by volunteering to be a Dr Bike support mechanic at this year’s Prudential RideLondon on the 9 August.

Dr Bike is a great opportunity for volunteers and bike owners to engage, learn more about their bikes and be given visual demonstrations of maintenance techniques and how to fix minor problems.

At last year’s Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle Festival, CTC organised three Dr Bike service stations at St Pauls, Green Park and Tower Hill, and managed to help over 2,000 people with their bikes. This was only achieved with the help of almost 100 hundred volunteers.

One Planet Adventure have taken forest-based mountain biking in North Wales and turned it on its head. Based in Coed Llandegla, they have set up a series of excellent built trails within a very accessible environment. Of course, OTC courses here are not limited to the forest and we make the very best of the wide ranging legal riding available outside of the forest and within the superb Clywds area too.

Carmarthenshire cyclists start local campaign group and look to build local support

Do you want to improve cycling locally……meet like-minded individuals…..and make a difference? CTC local cycle campaigners and cycle enthuiasts Phil Snaith and Geoff Rone have set up a forum in Carmarthenshire with the aim of making cycling a safer and more convenient way to travel.

The time to act is now as political momentum has picked up the pace. Cyclists' uphill struggle for better infrastructure and facilities has now changed up a gear and the Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 has been passed. You now have an opportunity to voice your own opinions and collectively campaign for better cycling for all in Wales.
