Leicester Cycling Campaign Group is a pressure group formed in 2012 to improve conditions for people who cycle in and around Leicester. With over 200 members, we represent a strong and independent voice for cyclists in the city and beyond. Our aim is to ‘make cycling normal’ by advocating for improvements to Leicester’s cycling infrastructure. We hope this will encourage more people to cycle for work and pleasure, leading to fewer cars on the city’s roads, less congestion and a safer environment for all.
We meet bimonthly on the first Monday of the month at 7pm usually at The Exchange (opposite Curve). See below for dates of upcoming meetings and check on Twitter or Facebook for any changes. If you’d like to get involved or for more information, see our Get Involved and Membership pages or ask around at Leicester Critical Mass (last Friday in the month, 6pm at Curve).

AGM AND GUEST SPEAKER, BRIAN DEEGAN
A message from our Secretary, Jaime McCutcheon:
“This year’s Leicester Cycling Campaign Group AGM will be held at 10am on Saturday March 30th at Secular Hall (75 Humberstone Gate, LE1 1WB).
“The current plan is to confine the business portion of our AGM to the first hour of the meeting (10:00-11:00). In the next two hours (11:00-13:00), we will host special guest Brian Deegan who has been a major force revolutionising cycling in London and who is now helping Leicester City council implement cycle facilities across Leicester. Brian will update us on London Road progress as well as other upcoming projects. We are also hoping to have other guest speakers, a short ‘safari’ ride around Leicester, and lunch following the event (pay your own way). You and others are welcome to come to any part of the meeting that interests you and should not feel obliged to attend the entire morning.
“As always, all committee members are required to step down and we are very keen to recruit new members. In particular, it looks like we will be losing a couple of long-term committee members who are moving to pastures new so please don’t be shy about coming along and putting your name down if you are interested in getting more involved.”
REPORTING DANGEROUS DRIVING
Did you know you can now upload video footage of close passes and other driving that endangers or injures cyclists or other road users, directly onto the police website. Go here to make a report.
We have now set up online payment for new members. So, if you’ve ever thought you should really join us but haven’t had the chance to do so or you’ve signed up at an event but not paid your membership (currently lifetime), here’s where you can do it £2 for individuals, £5 for families.
