Join us on Tuesday 7th October from 5pm at London's most bicycle-friendly cafe, Look mum no hands!, for a fundraising evening in support of our huge London-wide campaign, Space for Cycling.
We love cycling and we love our bikes. So, what better way to celebrate this wonderful union than with a professional photograph? Keen cyclist and photographer, Ivan Coleman, will take a photograph* of you and your two-wheeled friend, or even just get a shot of your bike if you prefer, all for just a small donation towards Space for Cycling.
Space for Cycling was launched by London Cycling Campaign because we believe that every Londoner, whatever their age or ability, deserves safe and inviting space for cycling on all of our city's streets. Councils control over 95% of our streets, so in April / May 2014 ahead of the Local Elections, we worked hard with our local groups to outline over 600 specific cycling demands. 84,000 emails later in support of the campaign and 45% of candidates (840 out of the 1851 newly elected councillors!) promised to create the changes needed on local roads to make cycling safer. Now, as we enter phase 2 of the campaign, we need your help to make sure that all the councillors who signed up to Space for Cycling deliver on their commitments.
Look mum no hands! is just off Old Street roundabout in East London; just look for the huge Space for Cycling sticker in the window! The cafe will be open as normal at the event so you can tuck into some delicious, freshly prepared food and there will also be craft beers and coffee to whet your whistle.
You'll be able to find out more about the Space for Cycling campaign at the fundraiser, as well as information on all the ways that you can get involved.
*Please note your photograph will be received as a hi-resolution digital image for print and not a physical photograph. Anyone who wishes to have a photograph taken with their bike will be asked to sign a model release form at the event. Photographs will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
