MPs to Debate Get Britain Cycling
I got this from "The Times"
A landmark debate on cycling will take place in the House of Commons on Monday, September 2, when MPs will debate the findings of the Get Britain Cycling report. This calls on the Government to increase investment in cycling across the UK.
This debate only came about because almost 70,000 people, perhaps including you, signed our vital e-petition. Thank you so much for doing so.
Now we are requesting that you to write to your MP and implore him or her to attend the debate on your behalf. You can do so on our campaign page here.
The result of your actions would not only improve safety for the 750,000 cyclists who already commute to work by bike in Britain, but would also have a significant impact in reducing traffic jams for motorists, easing overcrowding on public transport and saving millions from local health budgets.
When we last asked you to contact your MP in February 2012, more than 4,000 of you did so, which resulted in 77 MPs attending a debate on cycling in Westminster Hall. Many said they attended because they had been contacted by their constituents.
Almost 18 months later, we would urge you to do the same.
Thank you for your continued support.
Type-A (Open)Time Trials for 2014
It was agreed at the AGM earlier this year that in 2014 the CTT Type-A (open) events to be run by the club would comprise:
- 10-mile TT
- 25-mile TT
- 10-mile Christmas TT
in addition it was stated that Ron Taylor, who has organised the Christmas 10 for many, many years is no longer in a position to undertake the organisation of this event afer this current year.
It is therefore necessary for us to provide an organiser for this event for the year 2014.
CTT date fixing is to be held in a couple of months and it will be a simple case of 'no organiser, no event'.
If you would like to investigate what this task entails, please talk to Donald, either at the club TTs or at the club room to get more information.
If everyone lets someone else do this then we will lose this popular event.
Donald Ashton - TT Secretary
