a8f20004-063c-11e5-_915837cEsther was crushed by a lorry in Camberwell. She wasn’t spared pain, she didn’t die straight away.

The Stop The Killing event will be held in Camberwell at 6 for 6.30pm. Please join us to make sure Esther’s death isn’t forgotten and ignored the way people killed with motor vehicles tend to be..

Cycle Cash Mob

Cycle 'Cash Mob'

Would you welcome safer cycling in Palmers Green?

Come to the Palmers Green Shopping Carnival on your bike! – 12 noon on Saturday 5 July

Enfield Cycling Campaign are organising a short cycle ride along Green Lanes in Palmers Green during the Shopping Carnival on Saturday 5 July. We will meet at 12 noon on the junction of Green Lanes and Compton Road in Winchmore Hill. The idea of the ride is to:
◾Celebrate Enfield’s success in winning the Mini Holland bid to create safe space for cycling
◾Show our support for cycle lanes on Palmers Green high street
◾Encourage shopkeepers on Green Lanes that they will not lose business if some parking is replaced by cycle lanes.

People can also shop by bike! Some shopkeepers oppose the Mini Holland scheme, but research in the UK and abroad shows that cycling facilities boost business in the long run. We aim to reassure our local traders on Saturday 5 July by doing a bit of shopping by bike: a cycle ‘cash mob’! Please come if you support safer cycling for you and your children. Cycling should be for everyone. Come even if you don’t normally cycle – and bring your friends and your children and your friend’s children and your children’s friends and your granny and your mother-in-law. Oh, and your bike!

Space for Cycling Big Ride

Please join the London Cycling Campaign on Saturday 17 May 2014 for the ‘Space for Cycling’ Big Ride, which is a fun ride with a serious message, telling politicians we want streets that are safe and inviting for everyone to cycle.

Our event starts in Park Lane, with crowds gathering from 11am for a midday start, and from 1pm there’ll be a rally on the Embankment with guest speakers (to be confirmed), with the event ending at 2pm.

Enjoy riding through famous London locations such as Hyde Park Corner, Parliament Square, Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square in a motor-traffic-free environment that’s suitable for the whole family (see the route below).

En route, the Big Ride will also meet with the London Tweed Run, which this year takes place on the same day, and has LCC as its charity partner.

Feeder Ride

Enfield Branch will be starting a Feeder Ride from the Civic Centre at 9am

Guide rides to Big Ride

Our safe, family-friendly event is organised with the cooperation of the Metropolitican Police and Transport for London, and takes place on motor-traffic-free streets under close supervision of our expert ride marshals.

Participants will be encouraged to wear bright colours, fun costumes, to bring flags and banners, and lots of parents and children are expected, along with Londoners from all walks of life.

In 2012, LCC organised a similar, hugely successful Big Ride the weekend before the mayoral election, which played a key role in persuading Mayor Boris Johnson to massively increase his commitment to cycling, set out in his groundbreaking ‘Vision for Cycling’ blueprint for London cycling.

This year, thousands more are expected to send a message to local election candidates (as well as Mayor Boris Johnson and the media) on the weekend before the local elections, telling them that ordinary Londoners want streets that are safe and inviting for everyone to cycle.
