Volunteer with Southwark Cyclists

Do you want to make Southwark a better place for cycling? Get involved, no matter how much time you have to give.

If you’re interested in helping out, come to one of our meetings on the second Wednesday of every month. If you can’t make a meeting, contact us at southwark@lcc.org.uk. Below are some of the ways you can get involved, but there are other ways you can help out, so just get in touch.

I want to…

+Campaign for better streets

We run campaigns to build support for cycling and street improvements in our communities. We’re looking for volunteers that can help us hand out flyers, find groups we can work with, and plan out engagement strategies.

Contact Jakub at coordinator@southwarkcyclists.org.uk.

+Support infrastructure work

If you’re interested in the technical side of things, our Infrastructure officer could use your support.

  • Can you help us respond to Southwark Council and TfL consultations? Use your local knowledge to improve proposed cycling schemes.
  • We have also been tracking Southwark’s progress on cycle routes they’ve promised. Help us update our infrastructure map.
  • Or are you interested in writing an occasional blog post, summarising current consultations and helping draft consultation guides for others to use?

If you’d like to help with infrastructure work, contact Sean at Infrastructure@southwarkcyclists.org.uk.

+Help with the Dunwich Dynamo

We have been returning riders from the Dunwich Dynamo for over 20 years. We’re looking for volunteers to help us load bicycles at the beach in Dunwich and to help unload them back in London. Contact Jakub at coordinator@southwarkcyclists.org.uk.

+Fix bikes

We run Dr Bike events all year round. If you’re skilled with a spanner, or willing to learn, let us know. Contact Sally at bobsallyeva@ntlworld.com or text 07842 640 207.

+Lead social rides

We lead weekly Healthy Rides and are looking for ride leaders and back markers for these rides. We can even provide ride leader training. Contact Jakub at coordinator@southwarkcyclists.org.uk.

+Help with comms and photography

Want to help us with graphic design, social media, or photography? We need high quality photos to use on our website and social media, and designs for flyers for our campaigns. Contact Jakub at coordinator@southwarkcyclists.org.uk.

 

+Catch speeding drivers

Join a community speedwatch and learn how to use a radar gun. Contact Kevin of the Met Police at kevin.j.phillips@met.police.uk if you’d like to join.
