Making the world more sustainable through reducing the barriers to cycling

A global movement reducing the barriers to cycling

CycleHack focuses on bringing people and their places together to discuss and generate solutions to barriers that stop or inhibit people from cycling.

Through a variety of activities, we bring together a diverse range of people with different skill sets and experiences to look at cycling in a new way.  We run a global network of events, bespoke challenges for organisations and education programmes on how to CycleHack.

CycleHack 2014: The Film

Our first annual CycleHack Event took place in three cities, Melbourne, Beirut and our global HQ in Glasgow, Scotland.  Attracting over 150 people, each CycleHack event produced ideas to solve local barriers.  We produced a documentary about our inaugural event with Flux Video.

What is a CycleHack?

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.

The global event

Once a year we host a global CycleHack Event. This 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.
