Support Cycling Over The Tube Strike Period In London

For those who finds it daunting to cycle within London, here is an opportunity to start with the great support LCC is providing. So chose your route and go give that fear of yours a big blow. Who knows, it might be your big bang into confidence.

"Bike the strike to avoid stress" says LCC

LCC will be organising 5 ‘Bike tubes' bicycle rides into central London, to support Londoners commuting into work on the first morning of the tube strike Wednesday 10th June.

We are calling for all LCC members and cyclists to join one of these led rides in central London or even lead their own! The more of a cycling presence we can create the more we can show how easy it is to get on your bike. Here's how you can help.

If you are available to join one of the following Bike tubes, or set up one of your own, please email matthew@lcc.org.uk to see how you can get involved

We are providing all the information Londoners need to bike the strike at www.biketube.org.uk. We've got information on bike buddies, routes and bike hire. We've even got maintenance tips for people whose bikes have been sitting in the shed for far too long.

We think that this is the ideal opportunity to prove to people that cycling to work is a great alternative to public transport or the car. It's healthy, cheap, quicker than you might think and above all FUN!
