Welcome to Cycle Basingstoke

Helping people cycle in the borough

We are a cycle campaign group. We work hard to make cycling in the borough safe, simple and fun. We enjoy cycling and want you to enjoy cycling too.

  • We can provide you with information and advice on cycling
  • We support local cycle activities and projects
  • We advise decision makers on making our roads and paths safe, attractive and convenient for cycling.
  • We speak for cyclists however old, however young, whether fit or disabled, rich or poor.

Cycle Basingstoke wants better conditions for cycling – cycle friendly roads and cycle paths and routes which are fit for purpose. We want cycle routes that go all the way, safe, convenient, direct and easy to use.

  • Long Lane open to motor vehicles? Heather  objected to  proposals to open Long lane in Chineham to motor vehicles last Autumn. This was successfully turned down last Autmn.  Developers now want to use Pyotts Hill as the access for new houses.  It will be debated  this Wednesday 10th August at the public meeting of the  Development and Control committeeLong lane is very narrow and cars are prohibited.  A planning application for 10 houses in the grounds of Pyott Hill house includes a 3 metre wide access road along Long lane shared by cars, lorries, cyclists and pedestrians as well as bollards on Pyotts Hill.  Bollards are a hazard, particularly at night or when approached at speed downhill.The new plans are to use Pyotts Hill ...
