A vibrant Cambridge with people on bikes everywhere!

Cycling means freedom, independence and healthy living; it’s exactly this attitude that we at the Bicycle Revolution want to provide our local community.Our aim is to give users the possibility to contribute to the liveability and engagement of their town through a growing bike culture.

Where it all began

In 2020, after running the Cambridge Cycling Festival in town for four years we had the hefty vision of using our wee event as a way to inspire our (not-so-wee anymore) town to bike. 

Then COVID-19 lockdown! We all saw the buckets of people who found their bikes over lockdown – and with the right environment (time, great weather, no cars, boredom…?!...). Our streets were turned into biking boulevards, rugby shorts were on, helmets were on backwards, bikes were being used – and people were loving it!

Even those who didn’t bike, loved it! 
That was enough to throw the kitchen sink at our vision and create a hub and a platform to turn Cambridge into a bike friendly town.

We want to:

  • Provide practical information for everyday people on bikes
  • Run wickedly fun events to inspire and encourage people to move around town
  • Share stories of locals who are feverish about riding their bikes
  • Provide a voice to council and other decision makers for those who want to ride their bikes safely around town
  • Give our community a platform to contribute and have your say
  • Bring together the community to ride their bikes more around town and feel safe doing so!

A great town to ride a bike in is a great town to live in. 
Bring on a Revolution!
