City Cycling

Evans Cycles come up with a clever poster to persuade people to cycle during the five month closure of the Waterloo & City line in 2006.

City Police Safety Show, St Paul's

City Police ran a safety road show by St Paul's in 2005 as part: cyclists who were given Fixed Penalty Notices as part of the Operation Atrium crack-down had the opportunity to have them cancelled by attending a safety presentation here.

The remains of Sebastian Lukomski's cycle after he was crushed to death by a lorry. Friends forced the police to stop using it in the display. Seb had waited for the green light to move off, at which point he was hit: if he'd jumped the lights by moving off just before he probably would still be alive today.

Cycle ride with Corporation members and officers

This took place in October 2003, with members (local councillors) cycling or conveyed in rickshaws around the City looking at problems with City Cyclists and Corporation officers.

On the same day the City of London Cycling Guide was launched. City Cyclists had the idea of making it a fold-out credit card size format and assisted with the content.

Cycle tour for judges of the Administrative Court, Berlin

Around 15 judges from the Verwaltungsgericht Berlin, who were in London as guests of the Lord Chancellor's Department as part of an exchange, were taken on a cycle tour by City Cyclists in March 2003. Manyof the judges cycle frequently in Berlin, like most of the population. However that's not to say a insignificant number of those on the bench in London can also be spotted on two wheels.

After passing through the City, going up to the New River Head and canal at Angel then back through the City to Wapping for fish & chips and a pint, the ride went round Canary Wharf before returning via Tower Bridge to Southwark. They were taken back by how empty the City was during the weekend, by the redevelopment of Canary Wharf and by how good their hired cycles were. In fact the bikes the London Bicycle Company had supplied were brand new.
