Do you feel safe cycling in York? Or would you like to cycle, but don’t  feel safe enough to do so?

York Cycle Campaign exists to make change happen.

We want York to be known as a cycling city again. 

A city with a safe and accessible cycle route network for cyclists and cycles of all varieties – for 8 year olds to 80+, standard to cargo bikes,  on a trike or with a trailer… however you roll. 

Whether you are a seasoned cyclist or not confident to brave it right now, our campaign is made up of people like you. Whilst we would love you to get involved in campaign activities, you can help by simply giving your support. 

Membership costs just £5.00 per year (£2.50 for concessions) and includes more than just York Cycle Campaign membership.

What do I add? 

  • Amplification –  Simply being a member adds volume to our collective voice and that in itself is awesome. You need do no more.
  • Authenticity – You help identify the true issues that people who cycle in and around York face – we need as wide a demographic as possible.
  • Authority – Whether skills, experience, knowledge or pure enthusiasm – everything that members contribute is invaluable.
  • Action – Fancy getting involved? We need traffic counters, street teams, photographers, ride organisers, storytellers, policy writers, planning experts, pot-hole police, social media lovers and more – whoever you are, you help add to the campaign efforts.

What does York Cycle do?

We campaign to make cycling in York safe, convenient, and accessible for absolutely everyone. We long to see York as a happy place for all ages to go about life on a cycle. We do this by:

  • Representing the cycling community at council and other meetings.
  • Advising and responding to planning consultations.
  • Lobbying the council for cycling improvements.
  • Raising the profile of cycling in and around York
