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.
Over the past couple of years, we have organised four very well-attended Mass Rides, with cyclists of all ages and abilities taking to Winchester's streets in a show of solidarity and as a call for improved infrastructure for cyclists in the city.
During the coronavirus lock-down, with mass gatherings impossible, we substituted 'Not the Mass Ride', encouraging people to cycle to one of Winchester's well-known landmarks, King Alfred's Statue, and post a selfie to social media.
