Ride to Prudential FreeCycle

Come and join us on Saturday 30th July 2016 for a great day out as we ride to the Prudential Ride London FreeCycle where you can enjoy cycling on central London streets closed to motor vehicles. This year's FreeCycle offers seven festival zones and includes a section of the new East-West Cycle Superhighway which is planned to eventually come out to Ealing. We will meet at Ealing Town Hall, W5 2BY at 8.45am for a prompt 9am departure. Our ride to the event will travel along quiet back streets and is suitable for all ages, though under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. At 3pm we will reassemble at the same place near Hyde Park Corner for the ride back to Ealing. You are of course free to make your own way home at any time. You can register for the ride, which will give us an idea of numbers, or you can simply turn up on the day. If you have any questions contact: rides@ealingcycling.org.uk.

Sign For Cycling - Update

Thanks to everyone who signed the LCC's "Sign for Cycling" petition to make London a better place for cyclists. We have already exceeded our target of 10,000 signatures, and all the candidates for the main parties, with the exception of UKIP, have signed up. This is a great result and helps ensure that London will continue to become a safer, less polluted city. 

Ealing Cycling Campaign also wrote to all the main candidates urging them to sign up to the 'Sign for Cycling' commitments and also to continue the post of Cycling Commissioner for London. You can see our letter and the responses we've received so far below:

Help us collect signatures for the London Cycling Campaign!

ECC will be visiting cycle parking areas by Ealing tube stations to collect signatures on the Sign for Cycling petition, and we need volunteers. If you can help out, please add yourself to our poll to tell us which days and locations you're available:


The election for Mayor of London is 5 May 2016, and we're asking everyone to sign the London Cycling Campaign's petition.  The petition asks all candidates to commit to tripling the length of safe protected cycleways in London, building a new "Mini-Holland" safe cycling environment in each borough (including Ealing!), and reducing the threat to cyclists and pedestrians by lorries in the capital.  If you haven't signed already, please do so now!

Through the middle of April, Ealing Cycling Campaign will appear at the cycle parking outside Northfields, Turnham Green, and Ealing Broadway stations to collect signatures in person.  We'll be wearing red LCC tabards, handing out leaflets, and asking people to sign our petition sheets or enter their signature into the LCC Petition App.

The cycle parking outside these stations is a brief moment of pause on many people's packed train commute, and a friendly chat can help people step up and make their voices heard.  So volunteer today: tell us which day and site works best for you!  We'll announce the resulting arrangements on our e-mail list; and if you e-mail info@ealingcycling.org to let us know you've voted, we can contact you directly to confirm the time and location.

Sign for Cycling



If you want better cycling facilities in Ealing, please sign this petition. We're beginning to see some significant improvements in the centre of London, but so far the outer boroughs have largely missed out.  This petition is to urge the next mayor to keep funding cycle facilities, including a Mini-Holland scheme in every borough - including Ealing. This is your chance to make a difference - so please take a few seconds now to sign here.
