RIP Chris Hutt and other Bristol heros.
Devastated to find out that Chris Hutt, who I used to know in my Bristol days, died yesterday.
A very sad loss.
I hope as a memorial the local authority will not wreck the Bristol-Bath cycle path, which he worked so hard to defend.
I believe he died from a heart condition, sadly so many cyclists are killed in the saddle, he died at home
Pete Taylor, another cycling campaigner, and a good friend, died last year.
Last time I was in Bristol I had a couple of pints in the Highbury Vaults, a great night but reminded me of when I was in there drinking with John Malos, back in the late 80s or early 90s, a great ecosocialist, and a former Bristol West Labour Party parliamentary candidate.
I do miss John a lot, he died back in the 1990s....an Australian-Greek physics lecturer at the University....he was an ecosocialist when there were less of us about, Bristol is happily thick with the red and the green (Jerry Hicks for a start!).
The memorial we must build is a better future.
Chris Hutt would wish that you defend the cyclist from the local councillors, click, take action and defend his memory.
