Working to make cycling so easy, everyone does it

About us

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.
