Dear Julie,

In addition to supporting our campaigning work CTC members enjoy a range of benefits including Third Party insurance; 'Cycle' magazine 6 times a year; and discounts with retailers such as Cotswold Outdoor. Why not give Gift CTC membership to a friend or family.

Julie Rand, CTC Information Team

CTC Scotland plays an active role in bringing together representatives of CTC Member Groups, and other organisations, in the country to discuss and deal with matters relating to cycling in Scotland. There are many local cycling clubs and several cycle campaigning groups in Scotland and the rest of the UK, but CTC is the one body which embraces all kinds of cycle use and interests.
Nice one Sybil!
Congratulations to CTC member Sybil Williams, who was recently awarded an MBE for services to cycling and disabled people. Now you have the chance to join Sybil on a four-day ride from Cardiff to collect her medal at Buckingham Palace. Sybil, who started Pedal Power Cardiff – a CTC affiliate group - 16 years ago, has seen it grow from a cyclists’ café to a successful inclusive cycling project. Pedal Power to the Palace starts on Friday 10 October and will head to London via Bristol, Devizes and Reading. Contact CTC Councillor for Wales Gwenda Owen if you would like to take part. Crowns optional!

Help blaze a trail for all-ability cycling
Handcyclist in Scotland 80x80.jpg
CTC partner project Blazing Saddles is one of the shortlisted charities in with a chance of winning £48,435. The grant would enable the scheme to purchase a fleet of adapted bikes, helping develop all-ability cycling centres across Scotland. The People’s Millions phone vote number will be revealed on Monday 24 November.
Get radical
Radical Rick 2 80x80.jpg
Those readers of a certain age might remember Radical Rick, a kind of cartoon predecessor of trials rider Danny MacAskill, whose latest video shows him looping-the-loop on a barge on the River Thames. Unlike Danny, however, Rick rode a BMX – BBC take note! – and was the creation of artist Damian Fulton. In a recent interview, he explains the inspiration behind his cycling superhero.
Park life
Vine 80x80.jpg
BBC TV and radio presenter Jeremy Vine was stopped for speeding this week – on his bike! Caught by police using a radar gun in Hyde Park doing 16mph rather than the limit of 5mph, Vine apologised but later tweeted: "If cyclists are forced to travel at walking pace, they will return to the roads and mix it with trucks." Meanwhile, singer Bono suffered serious injuries while cycling in Central Park.
The Wiggo effect continues
Hill Climb Girl 80x80.jpg
Another cartoon superhero takes centre stage in an extraordinary film from Japan. ‘Hillclimb Girl’ features a young Japanese schoolgirl who is inspired by Bradley Wiggins’ epic ride in the Tour de France to try and beat her male school friend up a hill. Swapping her school skirt for Team Sky’s Lycra, her fierce determination to win is shown in the amazingly detailed illustrations.
