CycleDigest January 2014
From the Editor
I'm not exaggerating (honestly), but this winter I've seen smallish potholes grow into huge chasms in the hours between my cycle to work in the morning and my ride back in the evening.
I'm pleased to say, however, that reporting them to CTC's Fill That Hole has alerted the council and they've patched a lot of the worst ones on my list.
Patching helps, but long-term road maintenance, including high quality resurfacing is preferable. It would be even better to use any resurfacing opportunity to make the road network more cycle-friendly as well. This has been CTC's message for some time and, happily, it seems to be getting through - see this Digest's headlines below for more!
P.S. From the next issue, we'll be retitling CycleDigest as 'CTC Campaign News' - it'll still be a digest and all about cycling, so don't be alarmed!

The Road Justice petition, which is demanding better roads policing, is going to be handed over to the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) on 12 February.
