About

We are Colchester Cycling Campaign and we aim 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 aim to help people make cycling part of their everyday lives.

What we do

We want to see Dutch or Danish-quality cycleways next to busy roads, and quieter side streets that will encourage more people to ride. We lobby local councils to try to achieve this.

And more

Are you a pootler, a leisure rider, a tourist or a racer? We don’t arrange rides but we can plug you into local clubs that do.
• Colchester clubs and the cycling calendar.
• Local routes and a cycling map of Colchester.
• Contact us for advice on routes to and from Harwich.

Cycling maps of Colchester

Explore our town (and others in Britain) using the Cyclestreets map, the Cycling UK journey planner (best for longer trips) or the Sustrans map of the National Cycle Network. There’s also an Ordnance Survey map here. Colchester Borough Council’s Cycle Colchester team has a limited number of old-school paper maps – just ask.
• Local weather
• Local tides (based on Harwich; add 40min for the Strood at Mersea.)
