The Twittersphere has been alive with comment on the All Party Parliamentary Cycling Group report released on 24 April. A report is no good without the muscle to back it up.

A petition to make the governement get real is here: http://www.cycling-embassy.org.uk/news/2013/04/24/urge-the-government-to-implement-the-get-britain-cycling-report

A 20minute interview with the Bristol Post led to an article calling for a Cycling Commiissioner and mention of our forthcoming Manifesto http://www.bristolpost.co.uk/Calls-cycling-tsar-Bristol-George-Ferguson-backs/story-18802720-detail/story.html
Mayor George Ferguson has tweeted that he has signed up to the petition and is encouraging others to do likewise, so let’s make it easy for him and everyone sign up via the link above.
Bristol featured in National Press – a lot to go for but we’re in the spotlight now!
