The London Cycling Campaign (LCC) has opened nominations for its London Cycling awards and for the first time is calling on the capitals dwellers to nominate for five of the ten awards.
The winners of the new-look London Cycling Awards will be announced on 8th May at an awards ceremony hosted at St Martin-in-the-Fields by Ned Boulting, the face of ITV’s Tour de France coverage.
What are London Cycling Awards?
The new-look London Cycling Awards are a celebration of cycling in the capital, showcasing ground-breaking new cycling initiatives, recognising the coolest cycling brands, and highlighting the best community and youth cycling projects.
Have you bought a brilliant new bike product this year or is there a bike shop that you strongly recommend?
Maybe there’s someone you know who’s done something great for cycling in the last 12 months?
Perhaps you know about a really successful local cycling project?
LCC chief executive Ashok Sinha said, “We’re calling on Londoners to nominate their favourite retailers, products, projects and initiatives, to celebrate the champions of cycling in the capital. There’s never been so much excitement around cycling in our great city, and these promise to be the best London Cycling Awards ever.”
