The Cycling Hub We Want

During lockdown the number of people cycling grew rapidly. Residents are clearly telling us that the Cornwall they want for the future includes more opportunities to cycle and walk. They would like cycling and walking encouraged to reduce traffic and also to improve wellbeing. Some initiatives are already underway:

  • Cornwall will host the Grand Depart Stage of the Tour of Britain on the 5th September 2021. It will be the biggest sporting event ever to be hosted in Cornwall.
  • Cornwall Council is already investing in more cycle routes.
  • Now, working closely with British Cycling and Sport England, Cornwall Council is developing a regional Cycle Hub within Cornwall that will be a show case facility for the whole country.

The Cycle Hub will be a home for cycling in Cornwall and create more opportunities for everyone of any ability and income to cycle and improve their health and well-being. A Centre which will provide a safe environment to cycle and inspire a new generation of cyclists to lead healthier and more active lives. The breadth of facilities proposed will give opportunities for riders at all different stages, from learning to ride for the first time, through to cycle sport competition and training.

Over the past months we have worked with various organisations in Cornwall to develop a concept masterplan with early designs for the site we would like to use. You can find more details about the plans on this site and on the Cornwall Tour of Britain site, where you will also find surveys for Clubs, Schools and partner organisations. Please note the consultation closes on 28 September 2020.

We're keen to make sure the Cycling Hub will be a venue that you and your family will want to use. We want to make it as accessible as possible for everyone so it will make a real difference in levels of people regularly using a bicycle for sport, leisure or commuting.
