Upcoming Policy Forum seminars

We have an exciting programme of seminars usually held in Central London (most near Baker Street).

NEW! Our sixteenth seminar is London's first Women's Cycle Forum
Registration is now open here.

On Thursday 23rd October we are pleased to welcome an exciting panel of policy-makers, practitioners, politicians and advocates for London's first Women's Cycle Forum. What that means: it's a female-led event, not a female-only event nor one that focuses only on 'women and cycling'. Our panellists will each come to the event with a question/issue/challenge/topic they want you to help address. The event will start with thoughts/introductions from each of the panellists, following which there will be table discussions themed around their chosen issues.

Confirmed panellists so far include (more TBA)

TfL Head of Surface Planning Lilli Matson

Chair of London Assembly Transport Committee Caroline Pidgeon

Award-winning Advocate Sally Hinchcliffe

Senior Transport Planner Charlotte May


Our fifteenth seminar is entitled Current Cycling Research and will take place at 6:30pm on Tuesday 23rd September. A panel format will involve four academics talking about their work for ten minutes, each followed by ten minutes Q&A. The evening will conclude with brief reflections on relationships between policy, research and advocacy. This seminar is now full and so is closed for bookings. Our panel:

Ian Garrard, Brunel University - on a study exploring how much space drivers give cyclists wearing different types of clothing

Katrina Jungnickel, Goldsmiths College - on a project studying the bike, the bloomer, and the female suffrage movement in late 19th century Britain

Alan Latham, University College London - on a study exploring how people use cycle infrastructure in London, and what that tells us about cycling

Jo Wood, City University London - on research analysing hire bike journeys, and what that tells us about men's and women's travel choices
