Birmingham Cycle Revolution Bike Week Showcase

Birmingham Big Bikes


Tuesday, June 16, 2015 - 12:00 to 18:00

Birmingham Cycle Revolution (BCR) is celebrating the return of National Bike Week from 13 – 21 June with an entire week of pedal powered fun.

Bike Week is an annual, nation-wide opportunity for organisations to promote cycling and show how easily it can become part of everyday life. The dedicated week aims to get people to give cycling a go all over the UK, whether this be for fun, as a means of transport or to get fit.

Local Elections 2015: Survey of Candidates

For the council elections Push Bikes, the Birmingham cycling campaign group, is carrying out a survey of the views of candidates on sustainable personal transport.   Sustainable doesn't just mean environmentally friendly, it also means scalable (to cope with increasing demand), and affordable.

In October 2013 Birmingham City Council published the Birmingham Mobility Action Plan green paper, which says:

£22 million bid for phase 3 of Birmingham Cycle Revolution.

Following an announcement by Nick Clegg MP at the end of November 2014 of a further £114 million for the 8 cities who received Cycle City Ambition funds in 2013, Birmingham City Council (BCC) has submitted a bid for a further £22.1 million, matched by £7.9 million of local funds. This is phase 3 of the Birmingham Cycle Revolution (BCR), as a further £8 million for phase 2 was secured by BCC last summer (although these two pieces of funding will run side-by-side). The decision on this bid will be announced by the DfT in March, and will be reported on our website.
