NewCycling Newcastle’s cycling campaign, was set up in 2010 to lobby decision-makers to build safe and comfortable cycleways in Newcastle through political engagement, education and advocacy
Every modern liveable city has embraced cycling – an inexpensive quick means of active transport, which is inclusive, green and healthy. And our aspiration for Newcastle is just that. We are looking to learn from cycle cities like Copenhagen and Amsterdam. We know from speaking to local people, that many don’t cycle because of the aggressive traffic and road environments. Yet, many like the idea of getting around by bike. Together we are asking for better cycling conditions and more dedicated space for cycling.

Who we are
We are a constituted community group with over 1600 members and our campaign plan is agreed annually at our AGM. We keep our members updated through a monthly newsletter. In addition to our website, we engage and debate with our members and the public on social media via facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/newcastle.cycling.campaign/ and twitter @NewCycling. We also meet up with members at the AGM and at social events and infrastructure cycle rides when time and resources allow.
Our patron is Christian Wolmar, one of Britain’s leading transport commentators.
