Good work Oliver :-)
Being a) skint and b) time-poor, how can one help in this noble quest?
thanks! It's great that you're interested. There are many ways to get involved in cycle training.
You can get trained as a cycle trainer yourself (a really good training course, I hear, that many people felt gave them transferable skills) and work for a cycle training organisation or work voluntarily as a cycle trainer (which may not be an option if you're skint).
If you have kids at a local school, you can get the school to develop a cycle training programme if it doesn't already have one.
You can join your local LCC group, who will in all likelihood be doing something on cycle training. Or you can start doing your own thing with them--they'll be able to point you in the right direction and introduce you to people in councils or schools, etc.
You can help us lobby the Mayor of London on cycle training, for instance as an office volunteer.
As ever, you can do your own lobbying--write to the Mayor of London, to your MP, to your local councillors, etc.
We may well run a school cycle training campaign this year (TBC) so you could get involved in that.
PM me if you want to know any more.
