A conversation that started a global movement to reduce barriers to cycling


CycleHack began as a conversation between Jo Holtan and Sarah Drummond over a coffee. The pair wanted to find a mechanism to bring people together to positively address issues in cycling and bring something different to the cycling world over and above conversation about infrastructure. Matthew Lowell who is a keen cyclist and designer joined the team and together they set up CycleHack which has grown to become a global movement and organisation offering design thinking to the cycling industry.

Collectively we make up CycleHack and believe that through empowering individuals, organisations and governments to collaborate, share skills and prototype new ideas around cycling, we can build a healthier, more active and sustainable world.

We started in 2014 with the idea to run one CycleHack event in Glasgow.  This grew to 3 in Melbourne and Beirut and before we knew it, we were CycleHacking with 25 cities across the world in 2015.

We continue to grow our approach to reducing barriers to cycling which you can find out in our services page and welcome more Cyclehackers to join this growing movement.
