The London Cycling Campaign is issuing a crowdfunding campaign to try to limit the damage it says it being done by “taxi drivers, anti-cycling councils, and groups of organised and well-resourced NIMBY residents” to important landmark cycling safety schemes.
The group says that hard-won plans like Tavistock Place, CS11 and Mini Hollands are all under threat, and without the new Fighting Fund For Cycling may never come to fruition.
LCC says the funds will pay to:
• Provide evidence that demonstrates how important the infrastructure in these schemes is for children, families, local residents and local businesses.
• Design and produce communications materials so residents know the schemes are under threat.
• Significantly step up lobbying of councils to get them to embrace cycling.
• Run social media campaigns to increase public awareness that the schemes are under threat.
• Build alliances with big organisations to educate them on the benefits of cycling and enable the voice of progressive organisations to be heard loud and clear by politicians and officers.
LCC has secured a pot of matched funding from major donors and cycling trade organisation, meaning that every donation LCC receives up to £5,000 will be doubled.
In other words, you donate £20 and LCC receives £40.
