Times ‘Cyclesafe’ Survey

One or two members felt that other members might like to add their input to this survey. The details are below. To participate, click here to access the survey. (James Harding is the Editor of The Times, by the way.)

And, yes, about 100 cyclists are killed each year on our roads – I checked with CTC’s Campaigning Department. Mary’s accident happened last November.

Club Cycling Tops

Distributed at the recent AGM was the first batch of our newly designed CTC West Surrey cycle tops. We hope you like it – if you do, and would like to buy one, contact Rides Secretary John Murdoch. Your order will be processed as soon as possible, which basically is when we have enough orders to achieve a certain cost level – the bigger the order the cheaper each top. The first batch was a mix of summer weight long and short sleeved tops – 19 in all – which cost a tad under £40 each.

Thanks to our models, Peter and Bob, not to mention Louise who is clearly excited by something – presumably our models! You see the effect a well designed cycling top can have!

Several people have asked about winter weight tops – a copy of their price list may be found below, from which you can see that a winter weight top is an extra EUR10. The drawback is that ten people need to order them.

That sinking feeling….

Yes, the CTC West Surrey website has been down for a couple of days, but now it’s up again. For an explanation, please speak to Plusnet, that highly recommended services provider. Only this time the very nice customer services person got it a bit wrong, which is why the site was down for a while. Oh well…..never mind…Worse things have happened. Apologies anyway!
