We’ve got around 1,000 members in the borough. We work to make cycling safer and more inviting in Hackney, and to speak up for people who cycle in Hackney or who would like to. We lobby and advise the London Borough of Hackney (our local council) and Transport for London to do more to improve conditions for cycling.
In Hackney more than one in every seven commuters travels to work by bike. This is great, but rates of cycling for other journeys are much lower, and few children cycle to school. Hackney Council has ambitious targets to increase cycling, especially among schoolchildren.
We want to see this happen, too. We’re working to support Hackney Council or TfL schemes that will increase cycling, and to challenge the council and TfL where they need to do more to make cycling an everyday choice for everyone in Hackney, of whatever age or ability.
As well as our campaigns we help put on public events ranging from cyclists’ breakfasts to bike festivals, and hold social events and fundraisers like Burns Night. Other projects we are involved in include our popular self-help maintenance workshop. and our new Hackney family cycling library which lends out equipment for families to try.
People who are active in Hackney Cycling Campaign give freely of their time. If you have energy and ideas to contribute to help make cycling in Hackney more popular and pleasurable, we’d like to hear from you.
