Cycling (road) pictogram.svg
The WikiProject Cycling was called into existence on 30 May 2005. Since then, this project has assembled Wikipedians who share interest regarding topics related to cycling, and who are ready to create and expand content belonging to this area.

This WikiProject aims primarily to create, improve and organize articles relating to the bicycle and cycling. This includes but is not limited to the history of the bicycle and cycling as a competitive sport, as recreation and as transportation.

If you feel that you can have a positive contribution to the project, become a member by joining the list of members. If you don't know what to write or where to begin, or if you have doubts or ideas on how to improve an article, please address the project's discussion forum.

Goals
To develop the highest quality set of articles related to all areas of cycling and to ensure articles are of a consistent layout and have consistent navigation and categorization, consistent both Project-wide and Wikipedia-wide.
Parentage
The parents of this WikiProject are WikiProject Sports and WikiProject Transport.
Taskforces
The task forces of this WikiProject are Australian bicycle racing, British bicycle racing, Mountain Biking and Tour de France.
Similar projects
  • WikiProject Running - many cyclists also run, or used to run
  • WikiProject Triathlon - cycling is a component of triathlon. Articles that deal specifically with triathlon are considered within the scope of WikiProject Triathlon rather than WikiProject Cycling.
Overlapping WikiProjects
An overlapping WikiProject produces some pages which are at least partially cycling-related, even though the primary interest of the WikiProject is about something other than cycling.

If the talk page of an article contains templates from more than one WikiProject, then those WikiProjects could be considered as overlapping. In general, WikiProject Cycling seeks to co-exist harmoniously with other WikiProjects which share editing duties on some of the same articles. We can all help make articles better.

Similar Wikis
Wikipedia is but one of many wikis. Wikipedia has especially strict requirements for articles. Potentially many articles useful to cyclists do not meet Wikipedia's requirements for encyclopedic content. This can sometimes lead to disputes when well-intentioned cyclists create new articles on Wikipedia. If you write a cycling-related article here and it ends up on WP:AFD, please transwiki it to a wiki which welcomes a wide range of cycling-related content, and exists to serve the interests of cyclists. We will of course continue to develop cycling-related articles on Wikipedia which do satisfy the requirements for encyclopedic content.
Unsuitable articles
These are some examples of cycling-related article topics which may end up on WP:AFD if they appear on Wikipedia:
  • Small, non-famous bicycle clubs
  • Local group ride schedules and routes (unless a ride is notable, i.e., famous enough to have been written about in reputable media)
  • Reviews of bicycle shops and equipment
  • Travelogue-type articles
  • Articles with many unsourced statements
  • Articles about yourself (if you are famous, better to let someone else write about you)
  • Non-notable bike trails, paths, cycleways, etc.
  • Advocacy articles (although we can write about notable advocacy movements on Wikipedia, actually advocating something must be done elsewhere)
  • Promotional articles (persuading people to join your ride, club, or vote for something)

When in doubt, develop your cycling-related content first on a hospitable wiki and then try copying the article to Wikipedia after you have it in encyclopedic shape.

This is a list of Wikipedians who are committed to this WikiProject. If you're interested in helping, feel free to join by editing the table below and placing your username, in alphabetical order, using the {{user}} template (e.g. {{user|USERNAME}}). If you wish, leave a comment about your special interests on this project. You can add {{WikiProject Cycling user}} or {{User WikiProject Cycling}} to your user page, which will automatically categorize you into Category:WikiProject Cycling members. Adding yourself to Category:WikiProject Cycling members this way reduces the chance that some other project member will give you an unneeded welcome or greeting after you edit an article in the project. Please also invite your computer-literate cycling friends to join the project!
