We 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.

Our volunteers and supporters 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 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.

    AGM and Mingle, Wednesday 31 October 2018

    When you ride a bike in Bristol you become one of the most visible parts of a campaign for a better future. It shouldn't be this way of course, cycling should be completely normal and unremarkable. That's what Bristol Cycling Campaign is all about, "a city where cycling is so easy that everyone does it". BCyC is made up of activists and volunteers who've chosen to act together to get things done and make a

    2018 AGM (and Mingle)

    In planning for the evening, we had agreed to keep formal business brief, allowing more time for a Mingle we had promoted on social media and in member emails. The out-going Treasurer, Benn Woodward, took ByC members through the accounts. And we approved them. The out-going Chair, Eric Booth, explained that the formal Committee is now dissolved and that any member who is actively involved is a de facto ‘committee member’. Group co-ordinators gave updates

    Founding member Tony Ambrose on setting up BCyC in 1991

    Here's a brief clip of Tony Ambrose looking back on the 20th Anniversary of the founding of Bristol Cycling Campaign. Note that there was of course cycle campaigning before 1991, but things had gone rather quiet when Tony and others decided to shake things up. There's more of the story from John Grimshaw about 1974, creating the Bristol Bath Railway Path, the birth of Sustrans, and BCyC forerunner, CycleBag The start of cycle campaigning in
