Time is running out if you want to have your input as a cyclist into the Strategic Rail Authority’s Cycling Policy: The deadline for policy feedback is July 14th.
Whether you’re a train-hopping commuter, park your bike at a station or simply use the train to get to diffferent riding spots at the weekend, the Rail Authority’s plans will affect your use of the rail network as a cyclist. The CTC are concerned that while many of the proposals are a worthy attempt to integrate cycling into the Government’s sustainable transport policy, there are also some clauses which look like they’re out to make it harder than ever to be a happy traveller, including severe limitations on the space devoted to cycles onboard and a lack of specified minimum standards to which train companies should adhere.

and send your responses to Elliott Ball, Strategic Rail Authority, 55 Victoria St, SW1H 0EU, or email firstname.lastname@example.org by July 14th and get your opinions heard!
