Welcome

Welcome to Get Sutton Cycling, campaigning as part of the London Cycling Campaign in Sutton since 2014.

For recent posts see Latest News.

Get Sutton Cycling represents the London Cycling Campaign (LCC) within our borough. We are one of around 30 such groups across London. Our primary focus in recent years has been on improving infrastructure in Sutton, with the ambition to take forward, and build on, the 2014 Space for Cycling campaign (see our post about this here, and the LCC article here). In 2016, we promoted Sign for Cycling. Two years later, following the 2018 My Liveable London campaign, 55% of elected leaders across London agreed to submit a high-quality Liveable Neighbourhoods bid. Our borough submitted a high-quality Liveable Neighbourhoods bid last year (focused on Sutton town centre) and, if the bid is successful (the announcement has been delayed by the Covod-19 crisis) this could see an additional investment in our borough of around £6m. Covid-19 has changed everything very rapidly. Currently there is Streetspace for London and the government’s walking and cycling plan for England. Later this year, and into 2021, we will be promoting Climate Safe Streets.

Slide from Sutton Cycle Summit 2014

This early post Space for Cycling: action points for Sutton from July 2014 sets out a lot of the Ward asks we are still waiting for!

We have used Cyclescape and Widen My Path but are now more active on Groups.io, events this year have also brought us together over Zoom, see our Next Meet-up page and Meetings for more.

More slides from that earlier post, this is what @cyclinginsutton (our Twitter handle) looks like.

A photo of Park Lane. The question is posed: Could "light segregation" work here?
Worcester Road, Sutton. The question is posed? What are the challenges associated with removing through motor traffic?
A view of the existing cycle path on Oldfield Road. The question is posed: how would challenges at the traffic intersections be overcome?
