About us

We’re here to raise the profile of cycling and campaign for more protected space and better-designed roads so that everyone can get around safely: young and old, able-bodied and disabled, confident cyclists and newbies. Our ultimate goal is a city in which everyone feels safe to cycle, regardless of age and ability.

Bricycles is an independent, non-political community group, funded by member subscriptions and donations. It was established by Rob Stephenson in September 1980 as a response to the lack of cycling infrastructure in Brighton & Hove, with meetings taking place in The Eagle pub. Early members included Les Robinson, Simon Mills, Mike Wright, Rachel Bennington, Gordon Sillence, Angela Devas and Mark Strong. More recently, Becky Reynolds and Tony Green, who are now Cycling UK representatives, took the organisation forward alongside Duncan Codd, Rob Stevens and Adam Pride.
