about us

The Cycle Colchester website seeks to keep the community up to date with what is happening locally to promote and support cycling, whether you are a beginner, looking to cycle more, or into the sporty/competitive side of cycling.

Our objective is to encourage more people to cycle more often, whether for commuting, to get to school,  to visit friends, to go shopping or simply for pleasure.

We aim to:

  • Put you in touch with local cycling groups and organisations who can help you cycle more, give you advice and support and offer you different ways to enjoy cycling
  • Keep you informed of local cycling events and activities
  • Keep you up to date with improvements and developments of the local cycling network
  • Introduce you to local cyclists from all walks of life, who will share with you why they love to cycle!
We welcome comments, so let us know if there is something you would like to see included on the website, you have a cycling event you would like us to promote, or if you would like to feature in our monthly focus on a local cyclist. Remember to subscribe for our monthly newsletter.

This is a legacy of the Cycle Town 2008 – 2011 project.

Find out about the e-bikes he has built, his campaigning for better cycle links particularly between towns and his lobbying for ebikes to be recognised as a mobility aid. 'Getting the bus is causing me big problems, but cycling is good. Going to work by bus I’m sitting down for an hour and a half and I’d have to take painkillers before going to work, but not when I’m cycling.'
