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.

He is widely regarded as an expert on cycling infrastructure and he had spent the day touring Bristol's cycle routes. A lively Question and Answer session followed and the discussions continued after we left. A fuller post will appear soon but in the meantime

  • The start of cycle campaigning in Bristol, lessons for today?

    It's well worth settling down with the hot beverage of your choice and letting the estimable John Grimshaw tell you about the start of cycle campaigning in Bristol, and we venture, in the UK. He describes the striking series of demonstrations and actions that started in 1974 and lead to the Bristol Bath Railway Path in 1978, spawning Sustrans (1983) and the predecessor of Bristol Cycling Campaign, CycleBag (1977), on the way.
