Lambeth Cyclists are the Lambeth branch of the London Cycling Campaign. We work to promote cycling, improve conditions for cyclists and raise the profile of cycling in the borough.

Encouraging people to cycle

We run various rides and events throughout the year, especially during national Bike Week (mid June).These are social rides to places of interest but also serve to demonstrate alternative routes for cyclists.

Improving conditions for cyclists

Lambeth Cyclists work principally with the transport department at Lambeth Council and Transport for London to improve conditions for cyclists in the borough.This involves quarterly meetings with the cycling officer to comment on cycling schemes and general highways policy.

Raising the profile of cycling

Lambeth Cyclists attend various events such as the Lambeth Country Show in July or Car Free Day in September, providing information and talking to people about cycling.

As well as liaising with local media to publicise issues and events, we also work with other levels of government such as the London Authority and the London Mayor in concert with the London Cycling Campaign office.
