This month’s CTC mag includes an article about the politics of cycling, and what (at the time of going to print) the main parties’ positions are on cycling issues.
quality cycling conditions & higher quality facilities
|Tackling bad driving
& lowering speed limits to 20mph on most urban streets
|Cycle storage &
cycle training at all schools
we support Bikeability
|Create better access for
cyclists to stations (secure bike parking) & onboard trains
|Opening up green spaces to
cyclists (including access to coastal paths)
on a case-by-case proposal with local residents’ consultation
They’ve even got a page about this, with their version of the cyclists’ manifesto, at www.ctc.org.uk/votebike/
Strange - the more I find out about this stuff, the more inclined to vote in one particular direction I find myself. Don’t tell me which way you’re thinking of voting (for most of us that’s a decision kept between those short little pencils in the booths and the ballot box) . . . but are there any particular resources that help you make up your mind?
