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 quarterly 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).

The AGM will be followed by the East Midlands Cycle Forum which will include reports from campaign groups across the region and a discussion of local transport strategies from 10am-12pm.
STOP PRESS: We’re delighted to welcome Brian Deegan as guest speaker at the Forum. With a lengthy track record in sustainable transport transport and design, Brian is currently working as a healthy streets consultant for Leicester City Council.

We will finish with a session from 12-1pm on air quality and the role of cycling in improving this. Please feel free to come along to as much of the time as you are able to and do invite others along who you think may be interested in the topics.
And if you’re able to stay around afterwards, we’re planning an infrastructure ride for our visitors, ending up somewhere for a bite to eat.
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.
