We're one of the largest LCC Local Groups, and much of the group's activity is directed towards our local council, the London Borough of Hackney, and Transport for London; lobbying and advising on how to improve things for people who want to travel by cycle.

But there's plenty besides, including promoting the benefits of cycling, working to improve skills and training, helping to put on public events ranging from cyclists' breakfasts to Car-Free Day, and holding social events and fundraisers like Burns Night. Other projects we're involved in include our popular self-help maintenance workshop.

We make decisions at our monthly meetings, and we have an email discussion group which enables swift dissemination of information and ideas.

People who are active in Hackney Cycling Campaign give freely of their time. If you have energy and ideas to contribute to help make cycling in Hackney ever more popular and pleasurable, we'd like to hear from you!
