Commenting on Cycle Confident, the chairman of the judges said:
“With more and more cyclists taking to the road in London, Cycle Confident is doing a brilliant job at providing road safety and bicycle mechanics training to youngsters, adults and older riders. It is also providing much-needed training for HGV and van drivers helping them to become more aware of cyclists on the road. Anything that is being done to make our roads safer is great news and Cycle Confident has to be commended for making a major contribution to road safety across the city.”

Upon receiving the award, Cycle Confident managing director, David Showell, said:
“This award recognises not only the tireless and outstanding work being done by everyone at Cycle Confident, but also the increasingly important role that education and training play in keeping cyclists safe on city roads. While we are hugely committed to the community focus wherever we work, we also have sights set firmly on the global scalability of the benefits we’re achieving. We are immensely proud to win this award which recognises the impact Cycle Confident is making on this sector.”
