Local campaigning

Everyday cyclists are often the people who know best what facilities are needed in their local area or along their commute. You know which junctions you avoid or hate cycling through, what shops you don’t stop at because there is no cycle parking or which bits of new cycling infrastructure have made your life better (or worse).

Often the things that annoy you are also barriers to people taking up regular cycling and enjoying the many benefits of cycling that you do. The London Cycling Campaign is made up of thousands of activists and campaigners who lobby for change. This could range from getting your local supermarket or pub to write to the council to ask for a cycle stand on the pavement, to becoming involved in one of LCC’s 33 borough groups.

Below are some things you can do to make cycling better in London.
