We’re actively campaigning to make London a city that’s safe, inviting and enjoyable for everyone to cycle in. Want to help? You can get involved in local campaigning with one of our local borough groups, or join LCC as a member and contribute directly to helping us make London a great cycling city.
Imagine a city where it’s enjoyable and safe to walk and cycle for all your local trips, there are relaxing places outside where you can watch the world go by, chat with your neighbours, and children can safely roam and walk or cycle to school. For the local council elections in 2018 we are teaming up with Living Streets to deliver a campaign to encourage every London borough to submit a high-quality Liveable Neighbourhood bid and make sure the next council leaders embrace walking and cycling.
London elected it's new Mayor in May 2016 and we worked hard to make sure that cycling was at the forefront of the debate ahead of the elections. As a result of our 'Sign for Cycling' campaign, the new Mayor, Sadiq Khan is commited to providing safe space for cycling and make cycling safe and enjoyable for everyone by delivering our three-point agenda. Find out more about our 2016 Sign for Cycling Mayoral Campaign.
Space for Cycling
Our Space for Cycling campaign, with the help of thousands of Londoners, called on every candidate in the 2014 local council elections in London to support one specific action to create safe Space for Cycling in their local area. We’re now following up with those councillors to ensure they’re delivering on their promises. Find out more about Space for Cycling.
End Lorry Danger
We're calling on the Mayor of London to End Lorry Danger. All but one of the cycling fatalities in the first half of 2015 involved a lorry. We want the Mayor of London to get lethal lorries off London's roads and thanks to our Sign for Cycling campaign, the current Mayor, Sadiq Khan has committed to make Direct Vision lorries the only type used in London by 2020.
2012 Mayoral promises
During our Love London, Go Dutch mayoral election campaign in 2012, we secured a commitment from the Mayor of London to make our streets more liveable for everyone by making them as safe and inviting for cycling as they are in Holland. In March 2013, the Mayor, Boris Johnson published his ‘Vision for Cycling’ – what we believe to be one of the most ambitious plans to promote cycling ever produced by a major UK political leader. We campaigned hard to ensure that Boris Johnson delivered on his promises and were thrilled to join him on his last day in office in May 2016 to officially open the flagship North-South and East-West Cycle Superhighways - a direct result of LCC's campaigning work. We will continue to work with the new Mayor, Sadiq Khan to ensure the good work continues. Find out more.
