Birmingham Cycle Revolution is a major initiative led by Birmingham City Council to increase cycling in the city.
Over the next 20 years, we have big plans to grow and develop
Birmingham to secure our position as a world class city. We’re undergoing
a transformation to be bigger and better than ever and the Birmingham
Cycle Revolution is all part of these plans.
To start this off we have secured £24.3m to make roads, canal towpaths,
and parks more cycle friendly, and to launch city-wide initiatives to get
people on their bikes. Investing in cycling will reduce congestion and
carbon emissions, improve access to jobs and education, and improve
people’s health. This is why we need the Birmingham Cycle Revolution.
