London Cycling Campaign 2015: winners announced

A host of fantastic projects, organisations, retailers and individuals were recognised this evening at the London Cycling Awards 2015.

Among the winners were Brooks, Prudential Ride London, The Bike Project, Look Mum No Hands! and E5 Bakehouse, all of whom received trophies at the event attended by leading figures and organisations of London’s cycling industry.

Members of the public, London Cycling Campaign supporters and a specially chosen expert panel selected this year’s winners for their outstanding achievements for cycling across nine categories.

Over 3,000 people cast their votes online for their favourites – in categories that included Best Cycling Hangout, Cycling Event of the Year, Community Project of the Year, Youth Project of the Year and the Business by Bike Award – to show their recognition of the people, organisations and projects that make the wheels of the city turn around.

“The London Cycling Awards celebrate the vitality of all things cycling in London. Our winners are pioneers who have strived to make our streets safer for cycling and to attract new cyclists,” said LCC Chief Executive Ashok Sinha.

“They are businesses that are raising the bottom line through cycling and they are grassroots projects that are using cycling to improve lives, including for some of London’s most disadvantaged people.”

Cycling is a key tool for addressing the many quality of life, transport and environmental challenges London faces – so stay tuned for when London Cycling Campaign re-launches the award-winning Space for Cycling campaign in the lead up to next year’s London Mayoral Election.

The London Cycling Awards, in association with online publication Londonist, is the only UK urban cycling awards ceremony dedicated to London’s passionate cycling community – whether you’re a commuter on a Brompton folders or a Lycra-clad roadster, this is your chance to celebrate London cycling.
