Every modern liveable city has embraced the bicycle – an inexpensive quick means of transport, inclusive, green and healthy. And our aspirations for Newcastle are just that. We are looking to learn from 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, most quite like the idea of getting around on two wheels. Together we are asking for better cycling conditions and more dedicated space for cycling.
Our journey so far
Many of us have campaigned, lobbied and longed for better cycling in and around Newcastle for decades. Combining and coordinating our efforts will create a culture which unites, supports and grows our budding bike community. This is why we have formed the Newcastle Cycling Campaign. We want to provide one independent voice for local people and cycling organisations, for people who already cycle and people who would like to use their bike more. The Newcastle Cycling Campaign was set up as a not-for-profit organisation – a community group – in October 2010.
We are steadily growing and have now 1,400 members. And you are still signing up!
Our patron is Christian Wolmar
And – being a community group entirely made up of volunteers – we are always looking for enthusiastic people who have some spare time, a hobby or professional skill they would like to bring to the campaign – engineering, marketing, design, teaching – you name it!
