This charity's mission is to enable millions more to cycle. They offer a range of impartial advice, guides, reviews, inspiration and routes to help you experience the joy of cycling. Cycling UK also runs community projects and manages a network of thousands of clubs, groups and events.

Cycling Ulster has a mission to support and develop cyclists of all ages, disciplines and abilities, to grow membership and clubs and to advocate for safer cycling, better facilities and improved infrastructure.

Sustrans works for and with communities, helping them come to life by walkin and cycling to create healthier places and happier lives for everyone.

Sustrans is also the custodian of the National Cycle Network – the UK-wide network of over 12,000 miles of signed paths and routes for walking, wheeling, cycling and exploring outdoors. The National Cycle Network provides a vital backbone to the country, connecting communities to each other and helping neighbourhoods come to life. 

BCC wants to change the culture of cycling - from purely a fair-weather, leisure or exercise pursuit to a year-round way of getting where you want to go, at an enjoyable pace.

They are campaigning to make Belfast's streets safe to cycle on for everyone; children, adults, people with disabilities, beginners, commuters and tea drinkers, aiming to make Belfast a healthier, more sustainable city to live in.

An independent, voluntary group lobbying local and national government to bring about improved conditions for cyclists and greater recognition of the benefits of cycling. Instrumental in getting the 30km/h speed limit put in place in Dublin and very supportive of the introduction of the Dublin Bikes. Has been working both behind the scenes and in the media spotlight since 1993. Represented on the Transportation “Strategic Policy” (or policy forming) committees in Dublin City, Fingal, South Dublin and Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Councils.

The Cork Cycling Campaign works with local councils, community groups, and other institutions to improve cycling infrastructure and to encourage people to cycle. We make submissions on infrastructure planning proposals to highlight issues relevant to cyclists, organise fun cycling events, develop cycling information and maps, and act as a voice for cycling in the community. Our focus is primarily on everyday cycling – that is, cycling as a form of transport. We also support the development of recreational facilities like greenways. We strive to improve safety for all cyclists and to encourage mutual consideration, understanding, and respect between cyclists, motorists, and pedestrians. Together we make cycling in Ireland better, for those who want to cycle to work, school, exercise or just for pleasure.

ICC have a vision for Ireland where everyone has the opportunity to cycle to the shops, to school, to workplaces regardless of their age or ability.

Their unrivaled expertise in research, policy, transport planning, infrastructure design, event management and behaviour change means they are the trusted voice on cycling in Ireland.
