People who are killed and injured cycling are simply travelling home from work or visiting friends and loved ones. All while making the simple, environmentally conscious, life affirming decision to travel by bike.
Their deaths occur at central London junctions – often those that have long been known to be lethal. And on local streets – often where councils have been slow to act, or worse, have actively obstructed progress.
London’s mayor has committed to eliminate all serious and fatal collisions by 2041. But that simply won’t be fast enough. Even if it is achieved, it will mean nearly two more decades of lives lost and families torn apart because of collisions that can be prevented.

Please donate to support LCC's work as we demand faster progress to prevent all cyclist deaths and serious injuries.
Junctions are where the majority of serious and fatal collision happen. This year we conducted a comprehensive analysis revealing which London junctions need the most urgent action. In 2024 we must move politicians and decision makers to accelerate safety improvements before more people lose their lives at these junctions.
Councils control huge swathes of London streets so it’s shocking that many remain wedded to outdated car-centric transport planning. We must support our staff team and volunteers as they push London’s councils to deliver safe cycle routes in every borough.
In 2024 London elects a new mayor. For any serious candidate, delivering on safer cycling should be simple common sense. Alarmingly though, cycling is being dragged into the culture war. We’ll be campaigning to protect the progress that’s been made, to stop cycling being used as a political football, and to secure ongoing funding for a safe city-wide cycle network.
