SPOKES Posts Serious Stuff

Posted by chdot on October 10, 2006

Local cycle campaign group SPOKES has been pressurising local and national Governments for almost thirty years. One reason for its success is that members and supporters send streams of carefully composed letters and e-mails, to Councillors, MPs and MSPs.

To help with content of these communications the SPOKES web site contains masses of useful information (if you know where to look).

Latest additions include –
