We want Britain to become a true cycling nation.
Our Great Britain Cycling and Para-cycling Teams are world-renowned for producing a glittering array of Olympic, Paralympic, world champions and Tour de France winners.
British Cycling is also hugely successful at inspiring new people to ride – more than two million people now cycle every week. We’re working to increase this further and we want to see much more everyday cycling by creating a more desirable cycling environment.

Contact your council about cycling issues
Your local council and police force is responsible for the vast majority of issues relating to the roads, cycle lanes and traffic using them. If you spot a problem please report it. The more of us that do, the higher the priority it will be given.
- Contact your local council to report problems related to the state of the roads such as potholes, road works, parking issues or other obstructions.
- Contact the police if you suffer an incident on the road including any collisions, cases of bad driving or if you suffer verbal abuse.
- If you are not satisfied by the repose of the council or police you can contact your local councillor or MP.
