Safer Lorries, two-way streets and Sir Bradley Wiggins honoured in new-look London Cycling Awards

Transport for London's Safer Lorries procurement programme - only using the best-trained drivers and best-equipped lorries - was honoured as the Best London Cycling Initiative in the London Cycling Awards.

Its programme was praised as an essential step towards reducing the number of cyclists killed by lorries each year, and was recognised for helping to promote a "culture of safety" among haulage contractors in the capital.

The Best Borough Cycling Project award was shared by the London Borough of Camden and the City of London for their area-wide programmes of reverting one-way streets to two-way for cycling.

Both programmes were praised for making tens of thousands of local bike journeys more convenient and direct, and for promoting a model that could be rolled out by other boroughs quickly and at low cost.

The full list of awards-winners is below....

Successful winners from across the cycling world 

Hackney's Bike Around the Borough picked up the Best Schools Initiative award, while London Bike Kitchen won the Best Community Project, and Heathrow Cycling Hub won Best Workplace Initiative.

Sir Bradley Wiggins was voted London's Best Cycling Champion in the London Cycling Awards, with clothing brand Rapha, Brompton Bicycles, cycling website, and the Cycle Surgery chain of shops also picking up public vote awards.

At the awards ceremony, hosted by ITV’s voice of cycling Ned Boulting, was held at St Martin-in-the-Fields and saw industry bigwigs, politicians, civil servants and broadsheet journalists mix with mechanics, volunteers, bloggers and schoolchildren at an evening of celebration and recognition for the best in London Cycling.

The event was the culmination of an amazing year for cycling, and over 10,000 votes were cast in the awards by a public eager to applaud their cycling heroes.

London Cycling Campaign chief executive Ashok Sinha said:

“The awards come at a fantastic time for cycling, and we’re thrilled so many people voted in our new-look London Cycling Awards, and congratulate our winners as well as everyone who was nominated.”

“This has been an amazing year for cycling - more and more Londoners are enjoying cycling for their everyday journeys and it’s clear that cycling has really captured the imagination of the public.”

“This has also been a fantastic year for us, after we gained support from over 40,000 people for our Love London, Go Dutch campaign, which culminated in the 10,000-strong Big Ride.

"As a result, all the mayoral candidates signed up to our Love London, go Dutch vision, and we've seen much of what we asked for writ large in the Mayor’s new Vision For Cycling.

"We've also helped thousands of people cycle through our grass-roots projects, run in partnership with local community groups and businesses.”
