Bristol Cycling Campaign is for all those who want to see a future where cycling in Bristol and the surrounding areas is so easy that everyone does it – our communities will be happier, healthier, and greener.
We are a membership group entirely run by volunteers and supporters (Constitution). We work to create a vibrant and inclusive cycling culture, putting forward positive policy ideas and pressing for investment.
Together we set the agenda through our cycling manifesto and campaigns; influence through partnerships, networking, representation and lobbying; and provide a strong voice for everyone who wants to cycle.
Whenever you ride your bike you help make cycling a normal, everyday activity. You can also help in lots of other ways and add your voice to over three thousand other supporters.

Summary of our 2021 survey
Bristol Cycling Campaign’s annual cycling survey received its best ever response with over 1,200 people participating. The results show that concerns about road safety & collisions are the biggest deterrent to using their bike more. Not surprisingly, the majority (82%) said that protected bike lanes on main roads would encourage them a lot to cycle more, as with last year (What we learned from our 2020 supporter survey). It’s clear to us that if the…Read More
