Over 5,000 cyclists demand Space for Cycling

On Monday 2 September 2013 thousands of cyclists joined a ride organised by London Cycling Campaign to demand more Space For Cycling.

The ride started in Jubilee Gardens in Lambeth SE1 and proceeded across the river to Parliament where MPs were debating the report Get Britain Cycling produced by All Party Parliamentary Group on Cycling.

The procession, comprising over 5000 Londoners, chanted “Space for Cycling” while encircling the Mother of Parliaments – and inside many MPs also called for dedicated space to make cycling safe.

LCC will be working with other cycling organisations to take the campaign forward and ensure that Government at the national and local level delivers on the recommendations of the report.
