Our group is made up of all types of cyclists, from complete beginners to very experienced cyclists. We use traditional push bikes as well as e-bikes, sharing a common vision for cycling in our borough. We want our borough to be a place where

  • Cycling is safe and the traffic infrastructure protects vulnerable road users

  • Cyclists of all ages and abilities are able to cycle without fear

  • Cycling is the preferred mode of transport for short journeys


We strive to improve the relationship between drivers and cyclists. We engage with political representatives to improve cycling infrastructure while liaising with other cycling organisations: there is strength in numbers! We will expand local Bike Bus initiatives and will continue to promote Active Travel.

 When more of our residents cycle

  • Congestion, particularly during school hours, will be reduced 

  • Bangor’s city centre economy will be boosted as more residents “shop local”

  • Residents’ physical and mental health will be improved, reducing the burden on the NHS

  • The borough’s carbon footprint will shrink significantly


We want the Northern Ireland Department for Infrastructure and Ards and North Down Borough Council to work with us by:

  1. Adopting the 2022 Changes to the Highway Code immediately

  2. Formulating, funding and implementing an Active Travel Policy

  3. Applying the Hierarchy of Road Users in planning decisions, forcing developers to prioritise the needs of people with disabilities, pedestrians, and cyclists

  4. Assuring any infrastructure upgrades meet national design standards and guidance for cycling while ensuring cycle lanes are well-maintained and not used as parking bays prioritising cyclists over cars

  5. Developing and delivering a network of continuous, direct and protected cycle routes to around our borough, particularly to enable bike buses to get to schools safely

  6. Providing sufficient secure cycle parking where it is needed
