London by Cycle student events are GO!

This week marked the start of 'London by Cycle' the CCFL Student Cycling Event programme. London Cycling Campaign will deliver pop up cafe style cycle events on behalf of funders Transport for London and supported by the Big Lottery Fund.   

34 institutions across London have been awarded a series of 2 event days, which will usually be 3 weeks apart.

Event Day 1 will be a smaller warm up event, to let people know about the upcoming main event and what will be available.

Event Day 2 (approx. 3 weeks later) will be a larger event, with more activities available, including:

- Free London Cycling Mechanic checks to make sure your bike is in working order

- Cycle Training taster sessions and sign up for free sessions at a later date

- Get into cycling talk

- Lunchtime maintenance session – how to look after your bike

- Route planning

- Bike try-outs – pick your favourite and take it for a spin

- Bike security marking*

- Exchanging Places*

*Where Police availability allows

We're also helping to create or develop a Bicycle User Group (BUG) within each organisation – which will then join our new London Cycling Network

A further element of each event will be an assessment of current cycling facilities in the form of a London Cycling Survey

The aim of London by Cycle events are to increase confidence, promote cycling as a transport option, and get as many ‘bums on saddles’ as possible!
