Cycle Carlisle aims to make cycling in Carlisle safe, convenient and popular. We hope to encourage people to use cycling as part of their normal daily transport and turn Carlisle into a progressive cycle-friendly City.

This manifesto has been drawn up by members of "Cycle Carlisle" to record the improvements that we wish to see for cycling in Carlisle. It is designed to reflect the wishes of all who cycle in Carlisle, and especially those who wish to cycle more. Read more

Cycle Carlisle aim to organise events that promote cycling throughout the city. Past events have included mass bike rides and a mini cycle festival in the centre of Carlisle last year. There are also regular rides out into the surrounding countryside as well as various campaigns, meetings and film screenings.


Brampton social rides in October


Hello All
Apologies for the long silence and the lack of bike rides over the summer.Various events have conspired against us this year but we hope to make a dramatic comeback and most of all hope that you can join us on some of our rides.
We’ve put together a new schedule which is attached, and as before we are holding rides on the first and third Sunday of the month the first Sunday being an easy/medium family ride and the third Sunday a more challenging, partially off road ride.
We are having a grand re-launch of the Bike Club on the 2nd October with a very easy pedal and picnic to Talkin Tarn with an optional ride from there of about 8 miles if you are feeling energetic. If not we can sit and eat ice cream and feed the ducks!
Because we didn’t want to miss out on September completely there will also be rides on the 4th and 18th. On the 4th we have a “medium level” ride to Armathwaite and back and on the 18th a harder ride to Bewcastle via Gilsland.
For all rides we meet outside the Moot Hall in Brampton at 11.00 and bring a picnic and a drink.
Happy Cycling and really hope to see you soon!
