Don't miss your chance to get involved with shaping our 2014 local election campaign at our Annual Conference on Saturday 19 October 2013 at the London Metropolitan University in Holloway Road.
New members and supporters are strongly welcomed, and no prior knowledge of cycling policy or campaigning is necessary to attend.
"To succeed in our ambitious plan, we'll need to persuade tens of thousands of Londoners across the city to support our campaign.
"This requires strong messaging and sophisticated electronic tools, but also an army of activists to spread the word and build support in their neighbourhoods."
We published an article about the key asks for the 2014 campaign in the September issue of London Cyclist magazine – you can read it again here.
If you have enthusiasm and passion to make our streets safer and more inviting for everyone to cycle, then please join us on Saturday 19 October.
The event will include inspiring speakers such as Friends of the Earth UK Executive Director Andy Atkins, and is a chance to put forward ideas as to how we can transform London into a city that's truly safe and inviting for cycling.
The one-day event includes our Annual General Meeting in the morning, and a programme of conference events in the afternoon, followed by drinks in a nearby pub.
**To register your attendance at the AGM, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Lu Everett on 020 7234 9310 before midnight on Monday 14 October, when registration closes. We need advanced notification of attendance to ensure we have sufficient catering and seating.**
