You can now organise events and raise money using a JustGiving page, as we have now registered as a charity!
All you need to do is to go to JustGiving website www.justgiving.com search Cyclists Defence Fund and you can then set up your own personal sponsorship page which you can send out to all your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you and help you to raise money on our behalf!
CDF was shocked to learn of the death of Mark, who was killed when he was hit by a car driven by a 59-year-old man from Christchurch, on May 28th and would like to express our condolences to Marks’s friends and family.
The driver of the car has been arrested and released on bail on suspicion of causing death by careless driving. CTC's Stop SMIDSY campaign has been tracking cases like this to document how effective the criminal justice system is when it comes to the deaths of cyclists.

This Highway Code applies to England, Scotland and Wales. The Highway Code is essential reading for everyone.
The most vulnerable road users are pedestrians, particularly children, older or disabled people, cyclists, motorcyclists and horse riders. It is important that all road users are aware of the Code and are considerate towards each other. This applies to pedestrians as much as to drivers and riders.
Outdoor recreation has the potential to provide physical and mental health benefits to everyone, and access to the countryside and other ‘green space’ is one of the primary means of obtaining these benefits. There is strong evidence to show that outdoor recreation is a pastime enjoyed by large numbers of people throughout the United Kingdom.
