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.


20th Anniversary


To mark the 20th anniversary of the founding of Cycle Carlisle, the press will be taking a photo of founder and present members. I hope you will be able to join us for this on Tues 4 Sept at 5 pm at the back of the Sands Centre. We will have a short cycle ride afterwards for those that so wish. There might even be some celebratory cake to eat!

Do join us.
