Sustrans Vote

You can vote £50 million for cycling today! Here are the basic details:
The Big Lottery Fund has selected four projects that are eligible for £50M of lottery money. One project will get the lot and this will be decided by public vote.
The Sustrans entry called "Connect2" will provide critical cycle route links nationwide. More info on
Right now you can see info about the projects and vote Connect2 on line at:
You need to register first and then you will receive a validation email with a link that will enable you to vote. Only one vote can be made per email address.
Online voting ends at noon on Monday 10th.
Alternatively you can vote by phone. There will be several ITV1 programmes presenting the projects. The one presenting Connect2 will be on Tuesday 4th December at 11pm. Telephone numbers for voting will be broadcast. One vote per phone.

Phone voting commences at 9am Friday 7th December.
So spread the word! A big vote from cyclists will win the £50M and will also send an important message about the demand for better cycle facilities.

Wanted: Campag 8speed cassette hub

Pete & Daphne of the Cheam & Morden are after replacement parts for a Campagnolo 8 speed hub.
The freehub has given out on her original wheel and they are urgently looking for the simplest and cheapest replacement alternative - ie not changing everything to 9 speed. And fairly quickly as she's only the one bike!

I don't suppose any Phoenix members have got an old wheel that would be a suitable replacement for Daphne to tour on, but Pearson's have apparently offered to cannibalise a suitable hub.

Anyone got an old 8 speed racing wheel that is unlikely to be used due to upgrading?

Let me know and I will pass the message on, and put you in touch if you can help.
