Grants of £1,000 to £500,000 are available for organisations developing cycling activity in their community for the development of new – or the improvement of existing – cycling facilities in communities. Funding can be used for small-medium scale facility improvements or equipment through to large-scale new build facilities across all types of cycling.
The aims of the programme are as follows:
- Encourage more people from a range of different backgrounds to engage with cycling in all its forms. Provide more opportunities for people to enjoy riding in an accessible and inclusive environment, focusing especially on provision that responds to the needs of women/girls and people with a disability.
- Invest in opportunities that connect local communities and address barriers to engaging with cycling. Recognise the wider benefits of riding a bike to enable societal benefits such as community cohesion, reducing social isolation and promoting health and well-being through prevention.
- Deliver a lasting legacy of active environments that provide high quality and affordable opportunities to engage with cycling now, that will continue to be deliverable in the future.
