CYCLEHACK Global Cycling Initiative 2016


CYCLEHACK is a global movement on a mission to make the world more sustainable through reducing the barriers to cycling. By taking a grassroots approach to innovation we are we are tooling up citizens to take a pr0-active, do-it-yourself approach to making cycling easier, more fun and accessible. 

We believe that through empowering individuals, orgnisations and governments to collaborate, share skills and prototype new ideas around cycling, we can build a healthier, more active and sustainable world. Since we started in 2014, we have been catalysing a global movement of CycleHackers, a dynamic community of people who have participated in our events. Through research and development, we provide communities with different perspectives on how cycling can be made more accessible and the tools to design solutions that pro-actively solve barriers they face everyday.


A ‘Cyclehack’ is an idea that can be prototyped and tested in the city that addresses a barrier to cycling.

Hacks can be physical products, digital apps, ideas for new campaigns or even influence policy and can consider local infrastructure and route maps. The process of bringing multiple disciplines and perspectives together to design new ideas brings life to innovative ideas.

We have an online catalogue of all CycleHacks to date that gives an idea of the types of solutions people are building around the globe.


By signing up as a CycleHacker you can become part of our global network and join people around the world who are submitting their CycleHacks into our online catalogue. We’ve grown a global movement across the UK, Europe, America, Australia and the Middle East and you can sign up your city now.

Once a year we host a global CycleHack Event. This not for profit event brings people together from around the globe to come up with ideas that tackle the barriers to cycling and provides them with the tools and space to prototype them in under 48 hours. Working from Friday and Sunday, you pitch an idea that will make cycling easier or more accessible and build it by the end of the weekend. Find out how to run a CycleHack where you live.
