Do you want to cycle in Malvern?

The Malvern Hills may be a prominent part of the area, but for most of Malvern you don’t need well-developed thigh muscles to get about by bike. No shame in pushing up Church Street if you haven’t got an electric assistant!

With the increase in cycling as an everyday activity and the bike’s role as a healthy way to go green, Cycle Malvern wants to see action to meet the needs of all bike users and to encourage more. More facilities such as bike racks and cycle routes, projects to improve cycling to school and work, courses to help with basic maintenance and road skills. There is now a range of options to help almost anyone go more or less self-powered, at least some of the time, from young to old, the fit to the rather inactive.

Join us!

If you want to join us in pushing for improvements locally, an easy first step is to sign up to the Cycle Malvern group on Facebook. A small group of those who are particularly keen to take action are now (spring 2023) meeting every few weeks, setting up working groups and starting with small actions. There is room for a few more – get in touch via Facebook or use the contact form on our About page.

Main news items will appear on this website, alongside pages on key topics (such as Routes, Parking). The ‘Skills and Safety’ section is a ‘catch-all’ for things like School Streets. There’s also a bunch of useful web links.
