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.
