Funding for Children’s Cycle Training in England

A £1 million national programme is inviting applications.

Funding is available to bicycle training providers and community organisations for innovative pilot projects that encourage underrepresented children in England to take part in cycle training.

Applications are open to current Bikeability training providers and any organisation that can increase participation. Partnership applications are also welcome.

Pilot projects should be able to demonstrate how they can overcome barriers and increase participation in Bikeability within the following four key areas:

  • Lower take up in areas of deprivation.
  • Low take up amongst specific ethnic backgrounds.
  • Low delivery of Level 3 Training.
  • Low participation amongst female teenagers.

Funding can be used for promoting and delivering cycle training including staff/instructor time, salaries and equipment and resources.

Awards of up to £75,000 are available.

The deadline for applications is 29 October 2021 (5pm).
