Our new campaign or the 2016 Mayoral elections. Details below:
On 5 May 2016 Londoners will vote for their next mayor. We want to build on the success of Love London Go Dutch and Space for Cycling to ensure that London’s next Mayor commits to, and delivers, key improvements that will continue to accelerate the growth in cycling and reduce road danger for vulnerable road users like pedestrians and cyclists.
There is a huge risk that London’s next Mayor will not commit to making our streets safe and inviting for cycling. There is a risk that the political momentum from the current Mayor, which has given us the Cycle Superhighways and mini Holland programmes, will come to a halt. So, we are preparing the ground for our biggest campaign yet! London has a crucial window of opportunity to ensure that London’s next Mayor is as committed to making our streets safe and inviting for cycling. Will you join us?
We will be launching our ‘Sign for Cycling’ Mayoral campaign early in 2016. Please keep an eye on our website for details or sign up to our Newsletter to make sure you’re the first to know when we launch!
What will we be calling for?
We will call on all mayoral candidates to commit to creating space for cycling across London so people of all ages and abilities can choose to cycle for their journeys, through:
- More protected space for cycling on main roads and at junctions
- Mini Hollands: a Dutch style town centre in every borough
- An end to lorry danger
