United Global Voice

We believe in the power of unity to amplify our message about the benefits of cycling to bring about change at a global scale.

The World Cycling Alliance (WCA) is a non-profit organisation registered in Brussels, Belgium, dedicated to connecting, developing and spreading the best cycling advocacy efforts around the world.

We represent a mix of non-government bicycle advocacy organisations for everyday cycling and micromobility, working together to create a unified, effective voice to promote sustainable transport, human health and improved built environments in communities across the globe.

We aim to foster cooperation and knowledge exchange among cycling advocacy organisations, ensuring that cycling plays a central role in reducing transport emissions, creating more liveable cities, improving economic prosperity, and enabling social cohesion.
