Cycle to Work Day: what a difference a shower makes!

As cyclists across the UK take to their wheels for Cycle to Work Day, cyclist Sam Mugford relates how a cycle friendly employer has enabled him to continue pedaling no matter the conditions!

I never thought of myself as a cyclist. Cyclists were the lycra-clad enthusiasts found in herds on country roads on sunny weekends. I was always just someone who cycled a lot. I cycled to work, I cycled to visit friends, I cycled for fun. I cycled so that I wouldn’t have to learn to drive and own a car.

Shocking violence towards cyclist sparks Met man-hunt

The police have released footage of a man who aggressively pushed a female cyclist off her bike into the road in Tower Hamlets, London. The attack was captured on the woman’s helmet cam and has since gone viral.
Still of the man captured from the cyclist's helmet cam

A shocking display of violence and aggression is evident in the release of helmet cam footage sent to the Met police earlier this summer. In the space of just 18 seconds, a female cyclist sees a pedestrian walking into her path, and asks him not to knock her off her bike. The pedestrian then runs after the cyclist, and starts shouting at the cyclist before pushing her over into busy Sidney Street, in Tower Hamlets.

My Ride to Work: Sam Jones

As CTC prepares for Cycle to Work day, campaigner Sam Jones blogs on how he started cycling to work 8 years ago and the delights of his ride today.
Cycle To Work Day 2015 takes place on 3 September

I started cycle commuting when I moved back to London for work in 2007. Down in the west country I had had access to the excellent Scooter to Work scheme, and by applying my learning from the Compulsory Basic Training to the busy London streets I found the experience altogether less terrifying than when I had tried cycling previously in the metropolis during my uni days.
