British Cycling North East


British Cycling North East (BCNE) is one of ten English regions, administering cycling on behalf of the British Cycling Federation. Our aim is to develop cycling in all its forms in the North East of England. From Whitby and Middlesbrough in the south to Berwick in the north, from the coast across to Hexham and Barnard Castle in the west. Our full time staff and regional volunteers work on behalf of people who ride bikes whether that is for fun, commuting, recreation or racing. Lobbying local councils, going in to schools, promoting cycle recreation and sport.

BCNE has a formal partnership with Newcastle City Council to deliver community cycling.
