Cyclists and Motorcyclists Unite

Just days after this year’s Commuter Challenge (great report in tonight’s Evening News), where bikes and motorbikes split the honours, the CTC is backing the British Motorcyclists’ Federation.

The CTC is supporting the BMF’s initiative which calls on councils to clear the roads of debris such as broken glass, metal, gravel and other rubbish. The BMF has produced a Rubbish Roads Ahead booklet (PDF) and is writing to every local highway authority urging them to pay particular attention to the areas of carriageway used by two-wheeled vehicles.

CTC Campaigns & Policy Manager, Roger Geffen, said: “Rubbish Roads are as much as a problem for cyclists as they are for powered two-wheelers – this booklet is a perfect complement to our own pothole reporting website at www.fillthathole.org.uk.”

“Road sweeping is a simple and effective method of road safety improvement that could save dozens of lives and prevent expensive and time-consuming litigation for highway authorities”.
