Lambeth Cyclists is the Lambeth branch of the London Cycling Campaign (LCC).
Our aims are:
- to improve conditions for people on bikes
- to encourage more people to cycle
- to raise the profile of cycling as a means of transport
Improving conditions for people riding bikes
Lambeth Cyclists work principally with the transport department at Lambeth Council and Transport for London (TfL) to improve conditions for people riding bikes in the borough. We follow the policy positions agreed by LCC
Our network, people who live and ride in the borough, means we can help to identify current issues and potential opportunities for improving cycling conditions. When a new scheme for is proposed we can give feedback based on experience from current cyclists who know the area well.
We aim to meet regularly with the transport department at Lambeth and Cabinet Member to comment on cycling schemes and general highways policy.
Encouraging people to cycle
We run various rides and events throughout the year. These are social rides to places of interest but also serve to demonstrate alternative routes for cyclists.
Raising the profile of cycling as a means of transport
We liaise with local media to publicise issues and events, we also work with other levels of government such as the Greater London Authority and the London Mayor in concert with the London Cycling Campaign office.
Lambeth Cyclists attend various events in the borough such as the Lambeth Country Show in July and Car Free Day in September, providing information and talking to people about cycling.
