Massed cyclists approach Westgate as part of Mass Ride 5, 2021

Cycle Winchester is a local community action group, campaigning to make Winchester better by bike.

Our aim is to create a better Winchester by promoting cycling as a convenient, healthy and inexpensive way to get around the city, as well as campaign for improved provision for cyclists. In so doing, we also hope to reduce traffic congestion and pollution in order to make Winchester a more enjoyable place to live, work and visit.

Through a range of cycling events and other initiatives, we hope to highlight the many benefits of cycling and encourage more people to get on their bikes and join us in our campaign to make Winchester better by bike.

You can support our campaign – and gain discounts at local bike shops – by becoming a member.
