Our members have voted for 'Going Dutch' to be our main campaign theme in the run-up to the 2012 Mayoral Election.
We asked members to vote from four activist-chosen campaigns:
- Going Dutch: cycling space on main roads
- Unwind: removing gyratories
- Start Right: children cycling to school
- Love Thy Neighbourhoods: doubling local bike journeys
Over half of all members who voted chose the Going Dutch theme, making it the clear winner.
Campaigns manager Tom Bogdanowicz said, "We’re delighted to have our members directly select our major campaign for the first time.
"And we’ll be thrilled to lobby the mayoral candidates on your behalf for continental-style clear spaces for cycling on main roads.
"That’s not to say removing gyratories, getting kids cycling to school and
improving neighbourhoods aren’t important, though.
"All these issues form part of a progressive cycling vision for London alongside other Dutch-style facilities such as cyclist priority at junctions, reduced speed limits in residential areas, shared zones and ambitious parking facilities."
