How to influence Cycling UK Policy

Cycling UK is rightly proud of its 139 year history as a membership organisation, the largest and oldest of its kind in the UK and one of the largest in the world.

The organisation believes that one of the consistent factors in its success, and the respect with which it is held both by cyclists and by the organisations we both work with and try to lobby, is because it is governed by an elected body of members - volunteers voted into office by the members.

It is also fortunate to have an active and committed network of active members who work for Cycling UK and cycling voluntarily, commit huge amounts of their time to working for Cycling UK and cycling and who play an important role in informing the Board of Trustees of the needs and wishes of members, and holding both them and staff to account.

Because Cycling UK is the most visible of the national cycling organisations in the campaigning arena, our work is also heavily scrutinised by a wide group of stakeholders such as the cycling media, other groups, organisations and industry, and we are respected and trusted in that arena by the vast majority.
