Thousands in funding now available for communities to encourage cycling

30 July 2017

Transport for London (TfL) is offering up to £300,000 to help community groups encourage Londoners, from all walks of life, to take up cycling.

In the last two years TfL's Cycling Grants programme has helped 12,000 people get into cycling, and this new funding could get another 5,000 Londoners on the saddle!

Community and not-for-profit groups could get people pedalling with initiatives like:

  • cycle training
  • loan bikes
  • guided rides
  • courses on basic cycle maintenance 

Londoners who've already taken part in these kinds of projects share their cycling success stories:

One participant from the London Bike Kitchen group said she learnt how to fix her bike and is no longer embarrassed to ask questions about cycling.

Another, with no cycling experience, received training from Wise Women on Wheels and now feels liberated to ride the bikes that were hidden away in her shed for 12 years.
