LCC wins Liveable City Award

The London Cycling Campaign has won the Liveable City Highly  Commended Award in recognition of its outstanding contribution to Traffic Reduction and Transport Management.

Presenting the award on behalf of the Corporation of London, Jonathan Porritt, chairman of the Sustainable Development Commission for the United Kingdom said:

"Amongst LCC's achievements are the publication of maps showing cycle routes (produced in partnership with Transport for London), as well as leaflets giving advice on buying a bicycle and riding safely. LCC also work closely with major employees such as NHS trusts and the BBC in order to help employees cycle to work."

"LCC have not only contributed to a reduction in the amount of  traffic in London, but have also contributed to the health and well-being of Londoners by encouraging a healthy form of exercise."

Receiving the award on behalf of LCC, Tom Bogdanowicz, the organisation's Campaigns and Development Manager, said:

"The award is a fitting tribute to the 9000 members of LCC, hundreds of whom have provided Londoners who want to cycle with advice, assistance and enjoyable rides for the past 25 years."

"London Boroughs are leading Britain in cycling growth and we are glad to help make our capital a world class cycling city."

Simon Brammer, LCC's Director, said:

"We are delighted to receive this award as it further demonstrates the positive impact that cycling can have, whether that is in tackling climate change,  reducing congestion, improving health or enhancing communities."
