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 FESTIVAL SEASON IS ON ITS WAY!
Last year’s Riverside and Ride Leicester festivals gave us the chance to meet loads of new people and sign up dozens of new members. We did some great collaborative stuff with Leicester Critical Mass and the family, fiancée and friends of Sam Boulton on a decorated bike to honour Sam’s memory. Of course, we’ll be at the Festivals again this year – look for us around Bede Park / Western Boulevard at the Riverside, 3rd & 4th June. And keep a lookout here for details of the Ride Leicester festival in August.
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.
