Nominations open for the London Cycling Awards

Nominations are open for the London Cycling Awards 2010, which are your opportunity to reward the capital’s best in cycling, projects and events that have encouraged more on to their bikes.

The awards programme, run by the London Cycling Campaign, has been expanded this year to include the best (non-competitive) cycling event, and a special London Cyclist award for innovation.

Anyone can nominate a cycling project or facility for an award – and self-nominations are welcome. The categories for this year’s nominations are:

  1. Best Cycle Facility
  2. Best Community Cycling Initiative
  3. Best Cycling Initiative for Young People or Children
  4. Best Workplace Cycling Initiative
  5. Best Cycling Event (non-competitive)

Last year’s winners included:

  • An innovative project run by the police teaching deaf children to cycle
  • A brand-new off-road bike link providing a connection from north London to St Pancras
  • A redesign of a dangerous road junction in Islington, an imaginative HGV driver-cyclist training scheme in Lambeth
  • A pioneering scheme that brought cycling to three Hackney housing estates

Nominations can be made by an organisation involved in a scheme or anyone who considers a project or facility should be nominated for an award.

The awards will be presented at LCC’s AGM on 17 November 2010. Projects should have been initiated or completed since April 2009.

Deadline for nominations is Monday 11 October 2010.
