    ANNOUNCEMENTS
  • The Christmas lunch is at the Unicorn Inn, Orton-on-the-Hill, on Thursday the 7th of December at approximately 1300 hours, depending, according to Mike, on how fast they're pedalling that morning! It's a turn up and pay arrangement...I believe.
  • Nest Committee meeting is on Monday December 4th at 19:00 hours.
  • There has been no formal decision, by the Committee, to change our current name from 'Nuneaton ctc Cycle Club' but, in view of our umbrella organisation's change of title, now Cycling UK, it may be deemed appropriate to amend our Club's name to Nuneaton Cycling Club - although that nomenclature will appear on the Club's new jersey colours.
    NATIONAL STUFF
  • The article on the Road Justice Campaign has been on the site for some time but I'm reluctant to completely scrub it. CTC’s Road Justice campaign began in June of 2013. What Rhia Weston stated, "The justice system is failing cyclists..." has not changed - we all see irresponsible drivers every time we go out on the bike. If successive governments can't protect cyclists by creating purpose-built cycle-ways, then failing to instruct the judiciary to throw the book at car and lorry drivers who threaten, injure, maim and commit manslaughter is a culpable dereliction of their responsibility to us as our leaders. It's almost as bad as the US gun-culture - as well as having the right to drive, motorists also don't want to take the responsibility that brings! Causing injury by not taking care should result in those rights being withdrawn - until the driver can demonstrate, by petitioning, that they've become able to drive responsibly. It's up to us to pressure the powers-that-be to shift their backsides. Take the opportunity whenever you can. Contact: rhia.weston@ctc.org.uk
  • A CTC member has to indicate which section receives his/her membership fee or, by default, it goes to the DA (if it exists) in which the member lives - that means anyone who lives in Leicestershire but rides with Nuneaton - unless they state to National - their membership money (or that part of it that is allocated out) is used by Leicestershire DA.
  • Julie Rand is the coordinator for CTC Member Groups. She aims to provide a good service and answer all your queries promptly via the new dedicated email direct link or on 01483 238308.
