Birmingham Cycle Revolution

Detailed information about Birmingham Cycle Revolution, including contact details and events, is available at the BCR website

Our vision is to make cycling an everyday way to travel in Birmingham over the next 20 years. We want 5% of all trips in the city to be made by bike by 2023 and to double this to 10% by 2033.

This will help to make our city healthier, greener, safer and less congested.

We are consulting on the details of new routes which gives cyclists protection from traffic and prioritised travel through junctions.

What other improvements are we making?

Improvements include:

  • better cycling facilities on our roads
  • new and improved routes through parks and open spaces
  • 20mph speed limits in residential areas
  • resurfaced and upgraded canal towpaths
  • support to organisations through the Top Cycle Locations initiative
  • cycle hire facilities including Brompton Bike Hire
  • free training and activities
  • free bikes

In 2015/16, Big Birmingham Bikes gave away 3,400 bikes to adults across the city and we’re looking forward to expanding the programme to get whole families cycling in 2017.
