* Feature: Web Advocacy - CAMWEST's Experience
April brings the anniversary of CAMWEST's web site. In this issue we look at the lessons we've learnt on using the web and email to advocate for better bike facilities. Our simple advice: have something to say, and say it well.

Our site has done really well, and it has been a cheap and effective way for us to communicate our message to cyclists and decision makers, as well as encouraging people to get involved in advocacy.
