Urban Cycle Loan Scheme

London Cycling Projects work with borough councils, workplaces and developers to engage with people to take-up everyday cycling. These schemes deliver real behaviour change amongst individuals. This is achieved through the development of supportive relationships, providing access to quality bikes, whilst focusing on the health benefits, cost savings, freedom and fun that cycling provides each participant.

Current projects are running in the London Boroughs of Lewisham and Westminster. In 2015 we looked in detail at the benefits of our cycle loan programme and produced this report on the benefits for individuals and society.


Participant feedback

“Making the first journey to work by bike was a key
moment for me, and working out it’s quicker than
London transport and cheaper.” (Phil, 38)

“Since the programme, I have seen that it’s raining
and still want to go cycling. Before taking part in the
scheme I would have just taken the train and left my
bike at home.” (Sue, 30)

Client feedback

“The participant uptake has far exceeded our
expectations and it is evident real behaviour changes
are being made. It is one of the projects I am most
proud of since taking over the Sustainable Transport
responsibilities 2 years ago. Keep up the excellent
work LCC Projects Team!”
