Kingston Cycling Campaign petition for safer cycling conditions for women

Kingston Cycling Campaign are petitioning for safer cycling for women. As part of their petition, they joined the London Cycling Campaign (LCC) in a freedom ride from Kingston Marketplace to Lincoln Inn Fields where they brought their petition to the mayor of London.

In the summer of 2023, the LCC Women’s Network conducted a survey asking women about their experiences of cycling in London to understand why only a third of London’s daily cycle trips are by women as opposed to more than half in Dutch cities due to harassment that female cyclists face.

The survey found that this is due to a “shocking level of abuse and aggression from drivers and a lack of safe cycle routes to use all year round”.
