Cycling UK is offering grants of up to £2,500 for voluntary and community cycle groups to deliver cycling activities for people who do not cycle on a regular basis – from complete beginners, to those returning to the wheels or encouraging people to use pedal power more often.
Activities and events could be to help improve people’s confidence, increase short cycling trips or improve the perception of cycling safety. The funding can be used for things such as venue and equipment hire, staff costs and volunteer expenses, promotion and transport.
The Big Bike Revival Grants Programme will support events and activities that use the ‘fix-learn-ride’ model, giving solutions to potential barriers to cycling. Sessions will be for people who may be facing multiple challenges or with health needs, or for people on low incomes or lacking confidence for example.
Visit the Cycling UK website for more information about the model, target audience, and to apply. The deadline for applications is Friday 15 December.
