This site is about cycling in and around Colchester, Essex, UK. We are Colchester Cycling Campaign and we want to make it easier for people aged 8 to 80 to ride a bike to work, school, the shops or just to meet friends. We press our councils to provide better infrastructure and conditions for cyclists, with funds coming from public expenditure and companies involved in new developments.

We love the local countryside and urge you to visit too ... on two wheels, of course.

CCC are a little unconventional in that we're a "democracy by participation", so if you want a say, get involved by writing letters, talking to councillors or running a stall.

We were founded in 1990 and our successes include helping to establish the Wivenhoe Trail, the £4.2 million Colchester Cycling Town project and securing hugely improved bike parking at Colchester railway station.

See "Campaigning News" on the Essentials page. Here is a list of our schemes, major, minor and at the station and here are our views on various schemes.

What's Else Is Going On

CCC doesn't organise rides — but there are plenty of others that do. Colchester has a great cycling culture for a town of its size, and there are fitness rides, distance rides and fun rides for you to choose from, even if you haven't cycled for years. See the Colchester cycling diary.
