Lewisham Cyclists is the local group of the London Cycling Campaign in the borough of Lewisham.
We are a friendly and diverse group of over 700 cyclists from across Lewisham borough. We work towards making cycling accessible for all by supporting people to cycle in Lewisham, as well as campaigning for improvements to our streets and public spaces.
Helping you ride
Bike repair workshops
We organise a range of bike maintenance and repair sessions. Whether you’re looking for a qualified mechanic to check over your bike or want to learn the skills needed to maintain your own bike, we’ll likely have a session that is right for you.
You can find out more about the different types of sessions we run below:
- Mend and Ride Bike Workshop
- Dr Bike sessions
- Maintenance classes
- General advice
All of our maintenance sessions are run on a donation – “pay what you can afford” – basis
Cycle buddy scheme
If you want build your experience and confidence cycling on London’s roads, we can pair you with a more experienced cyclist from your local area.
A Cycle Buddy can help you:
- find quiet local streets, where you can practice and build confidence
- find and try out new routes to work or your local shops
- feel safer and more comfortable cycling in traffic
- find a safe route for your child to cycle to school
Lewisham Cyclists will put you in touch with your buddy, so you can meet up and ride together. They will plan around what you’re comfortable with, so you feel safe and supported throughout.
Safe local routes
Looking for some advice on where to ride?
We have collected some local rides we recommend, both in the borough and further afield.
Family cycling Library
Want to transport your kids by bike but don’t know where to start?
We run a family cycling library with Climate Action Lewisham where you can borrow items to help keep you riding.
We have ambitious long-term plans for our borough. We want Lewisham to be a place where cycling is an easy, safe, attractive and convenient choice for everyone in our borough.
We are working hard to identify and support schemes which will improve conditions for people on bikes in Lewisham. See a map of our current objectives and let us know if there are other schemes you believe we should be campaigning for.
Join a ride
We run a wide variety of friendly, social rides in Lewisham and beyond.
These range from gentle, slow-paced totters around the borough, rides designed to be suitable for everyone including families with young children, as well as slightly more strenuous rides out into the countryside.
