The awards were made in several categories and announced from three finalist for each category. These included Best Product, Best Urban Cycle Clothing Range and best Community Project of the Year.

In the Best Large-Scale Infrastructure Scheme, TfL was competing against itself and the East-West Cycle Superhighway won against the schemes for the North-South Cycle Superhighway and the Cycle Superhighway 5
We then had Cycling Champion of the Year, Best Cycling Event and Best Bike Shop.
Finally, Andrew Gilligan was given a special award. The photo below is borrowed from LCC.
Andrew gave a good speech, saying that he doesn’t yet know who will be cycling Commissioner for Sadiq Khan. And as usual, he advised us that we will have to keep on fighting to get what we want.
