Sign for Cycling is LCC’s most important campaign to date. We need London’s next mayor to adopt our campaign pledges and commit to making cycling safe and enjoyable for everyone. So we're asking if you could make a donation to help mobilise our volunteers and get the message out – we need London to Sign for Cycling now.
SIGN FOR CYCLING
Four years ago our Love London, Go Dutch campaign inspired Boris Johnson to make our streets as “safe and inviting for cycling as they are in Holland”. The campaign transformed the cycling debate and won real progress on the ground – a £100 million mini-Holland programme and new, world-class Cycle Superhighways.
In May, London elects a new mayor – your donation today will help us make sure she or he keeps our city on course to make cycling safe and enjoyable for everyone.
YOUR DONATION MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Every penny you donate will help make the Sign for Cycling campaign more effective:
- £5 pays for 500 flyers, which give us more petition signatures and a louder voice.
- £15 pays for a campaign pack so our volunteers have the tools they need to gather support out on the streets.
- £300 pays for signature collection software or an event kit – making us quicker and more visible when we’re campaigning.

We’re aiming to get enough people to Sign for Cycling to ensure London’s next mayor adopts our three campaign pledges:
1. More space for cycling on main roads and at junctions
LCC secured a huge investment in cycling at the last election. But London urgently needs more high-quality, protected space on main roads and at junctions – these places force cyclists to mix with heavy or fast moving motor traffic, which can put people off cycling. Our next mayor must triple the number of miles of protected cycle lanes on London’s roads, so that people of all ages and abilities can access the whole road network by bike.
2. A Mini-Holland for every London borough
‘Mini-Holland’ schemes create cycle-friendly town-centres. They encourage people to make local journeys by bike or on foot, help regenerate communities, and bring more customers to local businesses. We’ve already secured new schemes in Waltham Forest, Enfield, and Kingston. Now we want every borough to get its very own Mini-Holland.
3. An end to lorry danger
Lorries are the largest vehicles on our streets and pose the greatest risk to cyclists - their design restricts the driver’s vision. London’s next mayor must act to end lorry danger. This must include upgrading the Safer Lorry Scheme and using planning powers over major construction projects so that only the safest lorries, with ‘Direct Vision’ cabs and minimal ‘blind spots’, are allowed onto London’s streets.
