Got an itch to make Islington a bit better? Think it could be nicer to cycle? Worried about public health? Want to do something empowering, and actually make a difference? Then you’ve found the group for you.
There are lots of ways of getting involved. The most precious thing to give is your time; whether that’s two minutes responding to various consultations or a bit longer developing group responses and campaigns, it all makes a difference. We’re also always looking to collaborate with other local organisations, so if that sounds fun, let us know how we could work together.
Cycle Islington, formerly Islington Cyclists Action Group (ICAG) was formed on the 30th June 1976. ICAG became a part of the London Cycling Campaign (LCC) many years later. Cycle Islington is run by volunteers and works to improve facilities for cyclists and encourage more people to take up cycling. We promote cycling in the community at events during the year. Cycle Islington advocates consideration by all for all on our streets. We meet Islington Council officers almost monthly and the Executive member for Transport 4 times a year. We review major transport schemes and lobby for cycle infrastructure, secure bike parking etc.
If you join LCC (and please do join LCC !) and live in Islington you automatically become a member of Cycle Islington.
To get in touch tweet @CycleIslington, write on our facebook wall, email the coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or come along to a monthly meeting. For media enquiries, please contact Chris Kenyon on 07809 389 877. You can email ideas/comments/problems about cycle infrastructure directly to the Cycle Islington Infrastructure list.
We look forward to meeting you, and working with you, very soon.
