The British government has introduced a proposal to increase the maximum size of lorries on UK roads by two metres. National cyclists' organisation CTC has joined a coalition of organisations objecting to the proposal on the grounds that longer lorries will pose a greater risk to cyclists.

"Lorries present a serious risk to cyclists - one in five of the deaths of cyclists involve lorries," said CTC campagin director Roger Geffen.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
