About us

Cycling is healthy, cheap, fast, and clean. It could be a key part of solving our transport problems and ensuring the prosperity of Chester. We know that people want to use their bikes more but current conditions put people off. Chester Cycling Campaign is pushing for a better, greener city by making cycling a safe and attractive transport option.


The Chester Cycling Campaign is working with other cycling organisations in the city and with Cheshire West and Chester council to try to achieve the following aims as stated in our constitution:

  • To develop and ensure the maintenance of a safe, convenient, efficient and accessible cycle network utilising on and off road facilities that will help to encourage greater and more widespread cycle use.
  • To reduce the actual and perceived dangers faced by cyclists.
  • To ensure that cycling is promoted as a transport mode that can have a positive effect on a shift away from the private car particularly for short trips.
  • To ensure transport and land-use developments enhance facilities for cyclists and within the Council’s hierarchy of road users policy address possible conflict between cyclists, other vulnerable road users and motorised vehicles.
  • To support members by the dissemination of information and by providing opportunities to exchange information and experience.
  • To enhance the information and advice available to members, and thus assist their cycling activities.
  • To represent members on matters of both local and national importance relating to the aims of the Chester Cycling Campaign.
  • To encourage the mobility of people who require assistance to cycle, by reason of their disability, age or social or economic circumstances.


The Chester Cycling Campaign meets at 7:30 pm on the first Wednesday of every month (except for the month of January when the meeting takes place on either the first or the second Wednesday).  We normally use a hybrid meeting format with some people attending in person and others attending via video conferencing.

Meetings take place at:

Bowling Green Court
2 Brook Street

The Bowling Green Court meeting room has full video conferencing facilities with a large projection screen and a new Epson projector. A duty manager present on site 24 hours per day to assist room hire customers and visitors. The entrance is via one locked pedestrian gate and two large locked gates to permit vehicular access. The gates are automatic and are kept shut and locked except when in use. 

Bowling Green Court is close to the Bus Exchange and a short distance from the railway station. Covered, secure bike parking is available at the meeting venue.

Those who prefer not to attend in person can join meetings via a video conferencing link. The Campaign uses Jitsi as our video conferencing platform.  A Jitsi video link is sent out by email to all members during the week before the meeting. 

Meetings are open to non-members.  If you would like to be invited to our next meeting with a Jitsi link, then contact us to request a Jitsi invitation.   

Everyone is welcome. Please feel free to come along and find out how you can become involved.

Chester Cycling Campaign is a Cycling UK affiliated group.  For more information, please visit the Chester Cycling Campaign Website.
