In light of recent cycling tragedies, we’d like to share a bit more information with you about cycling in London.
We’re delighted to be officially supporting the London Cycling Campaign with the hope to make London’s streets safer for everyone to cycle.
SUARTS Education Officer, Hannah Roberts, had this to say about SUARTS supporting the London Cycling Campaign.
Many students cycle and that’s why I am delighted that our Union has become a member of the LCC (London Cycling Campaign). As a cyclist myself I know how important it is that cycling provision in London is improved and that students work with others across London to campaign for change.
I know many more students would cycle if roads were improved and there was greater investment in cycling provision. I would actively encourage students to join LCC.
London College of Communication are looking to get more Cycle Parking installed - to do so LCC need as many LCC students to fill out the following survey as possible! You can find the short survey here. It will literally take a minute of your time.
