Cycle Alton

Cycling peacefully through Alton’s High Street

Cycle Alton welcomes anyone who would like to see better conditions for local cyclists.

We launched in May 2020 partly in response to the Covid-19 crisis and partly with the aim of giving Alton’s cycling groups and individuals a campaigning voice for safer cycling and better cycling infrastructure. Our main focus is on short trips made by utility cyclists and commuters, while promoting cycling as the natural choice for short journeys around the town, and to and from the villages.

As well as individuals, our supporters include representatives from the five separate cycling groups in Alton, namely Cycling UK, Alton Cycling Club, U3A Social Cycling, Hearty Riders and the White Hart Vueltas.

Our goals are similar to those of the Living Streets campaign

• Better health, happiness, environment and community spirit

• Better public streetscapes for residents, visitors and businesses

• Less congestion, noise, greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution

Do register as a supporter to receive our newsletters and updates by emailing; and to be part of discussion and debate, and for our latest news, do send us your phone number to join our Whatsapp Discussion Group; tag us and follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Instagram.
