This web site is an attempt to bring
together cycle campaign information to make it accessible to
organisations and individuals interested in promoting cycling.
It is part of a larger web site with lots of information on
cycling, including special areas on getting your employer to be more cycle friendly with things like decent
cycle parking, a section which brings together on-line information for cyclists and
The recent, so called, fuel crisis
has given a great boost to cycling, along with all the Olympic medals
won by Britain's cyclists. Employers all over the country are
discovering that employees who arrive by bicycle are far more reliable
than car and motorbike based commuters, many of whom skived off work
with the excuse that they didn't have any petrol, and now that
Railtrack have been caught out by their lack of track maintenance
commuting by train has become quite dreadful.
So join your local cycle campaign group
for help, advice, rides and local newsletters on cycling in your area.
Membership includes free third party insurance and other benefits like
discounts at local shops.
Don't forget, cycling
is safer than walking, and in places like London is far quicker
than the car, train, bus or tube. You don't need lots of expensive
equipment, just a well maintained bike with good lights, and don't be frightened into buying a helmet, you
are better off learning good cycling skills. Remember, the roads are the
best and safest cycle network. Most cycle facilities are designed by
people who haven't a clue, and bad cycle facilities are
often dangerous. So stay off the pavement, ride well out from the kerb,
and enjoy the true freedom of the road on tax free fuel.
