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).

LCCG AT RIVERSIDE FESTIVAL – SUNDAY 2 JUNE
OK, so it was a bit wet at Leicester Riverside Festival but we had a good time talking to people about the Too Close for Comfort campaign with PC Stuart and the Close Pass mat. And we had ring side seats (stands, actually) for the amazing (if a bit crazy!) Danny Butler’s Extreme Mountain Bike Show (thanks for the photos, Grant).
GET BEHIND THE BIKE BOX – CAMPAIGN UPDATES
12 June: We’ve been sent a copy of a new ‘Tool Box Talk’ leaflet which Centrebus have produced to be distributed to all their drivers, outlining how to treat bike boxes and warning them of the consequences of breaking the rules!
20 May: Our Press Officer Eric Ludlow recently met with senior County Constabulary police officers, including Chief Constable Simon Coles. See our GBBB campaign page for his report, which has some positive news and an update on the first three vehicles reported by LCCG for not getting behind the bike box.
