Lewisham Cyclists believe that cycling should be considered by transport planners as a serious mode of transport for the twenty first century. In our urban environment, cycling has much to offer, being a clean, healthy, sustainable transport mode which takes up little space on our crowded city roads.
However, at the moment, urban planners have a lot of learning to do to catch up with a modern vision of urban transport, which gives cycling its rightful place, both in terms of safe space on our roads, and secure places to store them.
That’s why we have a campaigning aspect to the work we do, as well as the other activities we run.
Our main campaigns at the moment are:
We have recently put out a survey, to find out what people who ride in and through Lewisham believe are the most important issues, so that we can focus our campaigning more representatively. We will publish the results of the survey soon.
We are regularly consulted on cycling issues and infrastructure, and making sure that cycling is well represented in Lewisham’s bids for money from central government.
We campaign on all cycling issues in the borough, run events, cycle socially, carry out research, support London Cycling Campaign’s work. We always welcome new people who want to help support our aims and objectives. Email us anytime and have a chat about what we do and how you could help make things better for cycling in Lewisham.
