A cycling offshoot of Extinction Rebellion, the British-based environmental protest movement, has been launched, in an attempting to pressure national and local government into building new and better infrastructure for active travel.

Cycling Rebellion is the brainchild of Adam Osman from Bournemouth, who is hoping to grow his south coast group into a national campaign for safer cycling in order to decarbonise transport. To date, Cycling Rebellion has organised two Critical Mass rides in Bournemouth, including one on the weekend just gone, but this is just the beginning.

Adam is Cycling Weekly’s news editor – his greatest love is road racing but as long as he is cycling on tarmac, he's happy. Before joining Cycling Weekly he spent two years writing for Procycling, where he interviewed riders and wrote about racing. He's usually out and about on the roads of Bristol and its surrounds. Before cycling took over his professional life, he covered ecclesiastical matters at the world’s largest Anglican newspaper and politics at Business Insider. Don't ask how that is related to cycling.
