Camden Cyclists

Camden Cyclists (aka Camden Cycling Campaign) is the local branch of the London Cycling Campaign. Our website is:

All of the Consultations that we respond to are first posted on Cyclescape. We encourage members and others to offer comments and suggestions for inclusion in our response.

After registering on Cyclescape you can post messages on all our public discussions and you can initiate discussions yourself (New Issues or Threads on existing Issues). We strongly deprecate the use of pseudonyms unless they are backed up by a full name shown in your Cyclescape personal profile.

If you are a member of Camden Cyclists or cycle regularly in Camden we encourage you to join the Camden Cyclists Group on Cyclescape. This will give you access to any private threads restricted to group members (we don't currently use private threads).

About Camden Cyclists

We campaign for much better Space for Cycling in London.

Monthly meetings, workshops and training
We meet on the third Monday of each month at 7.30 pm either at Primrose Hill Community Centre (usually) or at Sidings Community Centre , West Hampstead (occasionally). Our AGM is in May and annual party in December.

Interaction with LB Camden, TfL and Royal Parks
We have four meetings a year with a group of Camden Officers to discuss how cycling issues can be incorporated into local area schemes currently being planned and how well they are addressed in built schemes. Paul Braithwaite (Councillor 2006-10 and 10-14, Camden’s Cycling Champion) was a useful participant in these meetings. His role has now been taken up by our new Cycling Champion Councillor Julian Fullbrook. Many ad-hoc meetings are arranged to discuss projects in detail (e.g. West End Project, Royal College Street extensions, St Marks Square). We also have occasional meetings with TfL officers (e.g. on Swiss Cottage gyratory and Camden Road). We participate in the Royal Parks Cycling Development Group.

Bike Week
We hold two regular events in Bike Week, a national event which usually takes place in June. On Wednesday morning from 8-10 a.m. we provide a Free Cyclists’ Breakfast in Ossulston Street, run jointly with Camden Council (the 2015 event was the 18th in succession). The Ride all Round Camden is enjoyed by people of all cycling abilities. It has been led by Paul Braithwaite, marshalled by Camden Cyclists and Camden Cycle Trainers and accompanied by police officers. The route starts from the Town Hall, follows the border of the borough clockwise with a picnic in Golders Hill Park. This year was the 9th event in succession.

Social Rides
During summer months we organise a ride each month. These usually include the popular Lee Valley Ride and a train-assisted ride in Herts, Kent or Essex as well as the newer Brent Parks Ride and the Ice Cream Potter. We also lead feeder rides from Swiss Cottage and West Hampstead to the summer Ride London Circuit.

Campaigning Rides
We have led feeder rides to two campaigning rides organised by LCC: the Space for Cycling protest ride in September 2013 and the Space for Cycling Big Ride in May 2014. In addition we organised our own election event: a ride to celebrate and demonstrate the new infrastructure in Royal College Street.
