Why run cycling events for students?

 

The aim of London by Cycle events are to increase confidence, promote cycling as a transport option, and get as many ‘bums on saddles’ as possible!

We're also helping to create or develop a Bicycle User Group (BUG) within each organisation – which will then join our new London Cycling Network - these groups can get students and staff working together to make facilities in and around the college better for cycling. This will be backed up by the expert assessment  of LCC's London Cycling Survey at each institution.

See the latest event photos on our London by Cycle facebook page or find us on Twitter and use the hashtag #londonbycycle.

You can also email londonbycycle@lcc.org.uk for further information.

 

What's in it for me?

 

Apart from all the great activities list above, everyone who attends the event and chats to one of our London by Cycle staff will get a London by Cycle pack, including FREE back up lights!

 


We are also running a photo competition on Twitter - tweet us a photo with the caption 'why I want to ride a bike' to win great prizes, and we have two Bobbin bikes up for grabs for those who have come along to seen us and left their e-mail address. You just need to fill in a short survey online to enter!
