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 e-newsletter, Cycle Campaign News; 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: 
At peak, I've owned seven bikes. I reduced this to three a couple of years ago, but I'm back up to seven now. I ride my two hybrids much more often than any of the others, especially the road bikes (need more practice on them, I think).
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 watching road racing that I didn't anticipate - I'm not nearly sporty enough to take part, though.
About Me: 
I've been at CTC for 16 years - much, much longer than I've worked anywhere else. My first 'real' job was for BBC 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 - an excellent language.
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.
