CTC Staff Profile
What I do for CTC: 
I'm CTC's Campaigns and Policy Information Co-ordinator. My role includes: putting together CTC's new series of briefings designed to explain and back up our campaigning views; editing CTC's campaigning newsletter, CycleDigest; looking after CTC's Campaigns Library; and answering campaigns queries.
My Cycling
Where I Ride: 
Almost always in Surrey, usually to work and back.
What I Ride: 
I used to own seven bikes, but after buying a new bike earlier this year and a cull, now only have four. Out of what I have left, my favourites are my relatively new hybrid Cannondale and my relatively old, but still very golden and faithful Claud Butler Majestique, the bike I keep at the station.
Cycling Interest(s): 
Campaigning, oddly enough! I was a member of Godalming Cycle Campaign long before I joined CTC. Over the last few years, I've developed a marked interest in road racing that I didn't anticipate - but I'm not nearly sporty enough to take part.
About Me: 
I've been at CTC for 14 years - much longer than I've worked anywhere else. My first job was for the BBC's Radio Sound Archives, where I catalogued all sorts of recordings from Afternoon Plays, to the Proms and the World at One. Before that, I studied Latin, but can't recall all that much of it now.
Likes and Dislikes: 
I like people who think about their impact on everything - by 'everything' I mainly mean the environment and anything that's alive. I dislike the reverse of this. Otherwise, I loathe gritty, windy, cold picnics on beaches.
