Your question about my being your representative is answered this way. The Cyclists' Touring Club (membership 70,000) has a nationwide group of volunteers dedicated to trying to improve cycling conditions in their area. They are known as the CTC's Right to Ride Representatives. I am one but we need more. Too many cyclists, quite understandably, are unwilling to waste their time trying to improve conditions for themselves and others as they know few authorities are willing to take cyclists seriously. You have to be willing to bang your head against the wall almost indefinitely, but sometimes cracks appear and Connect2 is one of them. Hopefully this is the start of improved conditions. Now we need more cyclists and others to persuade Stockport MBC to complete the job and link Chadkirk with Stockport Town Centre and the Trans Pennine Trail.
