Cycletopia includes 15 real life examples of good schemes to promote cycling

As the largest cycling organisation in the UK, CTC is often asked to suggest the UK’s model cycling town. Our answer is always that there isn’t one, yet! However, together with over 400 of CTC’s local cycle campaigners, CTC has highlighted 15 great schemes and projects that demonstrate you don’t have to go abroad to see examples of good practice.

If you want to get involved in seeing Cycletopia in your town, you can join your local cycle campaign, create your own campaign, or become a local representative of CTC, lobbying your local council to improve conditions for cycling. 

To find out more about each of the 15 elements in the town visit Cycletopia.
