We work tirelessly and effectively to improve conditions for cyclists in Greater London, in the pursuit of a healthier and happier city for everyone.
Your membership is vital to support our efforts, helping to give cyclists a louder voice, and adding weight to our campaigns.
We lobby decision-makers at every level to have cycling placed at the centre of transport and planning policies, striving for very best facilities and the safest streets for you and your loved ones.
Current campaigns include:
- 2012 Mayoral Election We've asked our members to choose the central theme that will underpin our big push for 2012. Find out more and have your say on the forum, but only members can vote for the vital issue.
- No More Lethal Lorries We’ve been instrumental in making reducing lorry danger one of the central tenets of the mayor’s Cycle Safety Action Plan, and we’ve pushed borough councils to greater efforts in driver training. However, more needs to be done to save cyclists’ lives.
- Beat The Thief Bike theft has been pushed much higher up the policing agenda, and LCC was delighted when a dedicated police Cycle Task Force was created last year, after lengthy lobbing from us. This team of 50 officers has made reducing bike theft its major priority, but crime is still a major issue.
- Cycle Parking 4 London The mayor and local councils have agreed that the chronic shortage bike parking spaces in London is unacceptable, and we're working with them to identify practical locations for 60,000 more spaces using user-generated content from www.cycleparking4london.org.uk.
