    Reclaiming the World

    About 40 cyclist joined Campaign For Better City on a 'critical mass' style ride through the city streets at 5:30pm on Friday, 3 December. This massed coincidence occurs on the first Friday of every month. Riders congregate outside 265 Cuba Street at 5:30pm. Next ride will be on 3 February 95.


    The Waterfront

    Since the last newsletter, three CAW members have had a meeting with Lambton Harbour Management, Donald Best, to discuss the provision of a cycling facilty along the waterfront. It appears no such provision has been made. We will be following up our visit with a submission. Please; if you are cycling along the waterfront every day, or every so often, for recreation, please come forward.

    News from Britain

    In Britain, the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution has called for measures to reduce the use of cars and for the proportion of urban journeys by bicycle to be increased. The commission recommended a doubling of petrol prices and a halving of road-building programmes, the money to be spent instead on public transport. In reaction, the British AA complained that motorists were 'faced with penalties to drive us out of our cars on to non-existant or inadequate alternatives.'
