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.
Cycling benefits people and planet
Cycling improves population health including mental health, cardiovascular and musculoskeletal health, and reduces risk of diabetes and dementia
Cycling produces no emissions and can significantly reduce the climate impacts of the transport sector
Cycling is a social activity that brings people together. It enables people to get out on the street and interact with others and their environment.
Cycling emits no localised air or noise pollution. With thousands of death caused by particulates globally, cycling can help mitigate these impacts.
People spend more money when cycling or on foot than when driving. And cycling tourism is a booming industry throughout the world
Access and Equality
Cycling gives freedom to children, seniors and people living with disability. It provides access to public transport, school, shopping and other everyday activities
