Join the Mayor's Sky Ride

Join Mayor of London Boris Johnson for this year's central London Sky Ride this Sunday, 4 September.

Last week, the Mayor unveiled details of this year's 11.6km central London Sky Ride route which will take tens of thousands of cyclists past some of the capital's most iconic buildings.

The traffic-free streets will put cyclists closer to the London Eye than ever before, with the circular route running across Westminster Bridge, before looping back up past Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, up the Mall, out onto Trafalgar Square, down through Whitehall and out onto the river views of The Embankment. The route also passes St James’s Park, Buckingham Palace, The Tower of London and London Bridge.

Share your views on London

By Boris Johnson

A pretty great Londoner (William Shakespeare) once asked: 'What is the city but the people?' before answering: 'The people are the city'. London is the best big city in the world largely because of the people who live in it - you. That is why we want to know how you would take it forward.

As I hope you can tell from this questionnaire we are very proud of what we have achieved over the last three of years. For instance, we froze the Mayor’s share of council tax making taxpayers’ money go further than before. And we have ramped up the fight against crime which is now down by 9% making London the safest it has been for a decade.

BackBoris CF telephone canvassing

Young activists took over CCHQ last evening for CF's fortnightly BackBoris telecanvassing session.

The team spoke with voters in the Chingford area, listening to their priorities for London and their views on Boris's administration. Given recent events, it was no surprise that crime topped many agendas. The majority of people I spoke with were pleased to hear about Boris’s achievements in this key area: a 9% reduction in crime generally and 20% reduction in the number of burglaries, plus over 1,000 more police on the streets by May 2012 than in May 2008. In my view, the statistics speak for themselves.

By the end of the night, we had a great pile of completed questionnaires and loads of new sign-ups to the campaign! A fun and productive evening was had by all.

Leafleting at the Oval

The sun was shining on Sunday morning as England played India in the fourth and final Test match at the Oval in Kennington, and whilst the stands were filling up, Boris Backers were out in force to leaflet the crowds as they entered the stadium. We had a really great turnout, with sixteen young activists making their way down to Kennington to help spread the word about Boris’s achievements – cutting crime, freezing council tax, improving public transport and delivering the Olympic Games on time and on budget.

The response from the crowds was very positive, with the majority of people firmly believing that Boris is taking London in the right direction. If you want to help make sure London keeps moving in the right direction, sign up as an Activist at http://www.backboris2012.com/dashboard.

Youth campaign update

The BackBoris youth campaign has had a busy summer so far. Young activists have been out and about across London, campaigning hard to make sure the Mayor of London is re-elected, and the support we’ve got has been magnificent.

We've held successful campaign days throughout London and have loads more planned over the next few months. Our Richmond and Kingston teams leafleted at both the Wimbledon Ladies’ Final and the England vs Wales Rugby match at Twickenham, while in the North, we worked with local teams in Harrow and Enfield to help hold Council Seats in by-elections and get the BackBoris2012 message out at the same time.
