Cycling Friendly Campus

Cycle Friendly Campus

Cycling a great way to stay fit and healthy, it reduces stress and improves mental health, saves on transport costs and is a great way to get to know a new city. 

The Cycling Friendly Campus programme supports colleges and universities to promote cycling as a healthy and sustainable travel option for staff and students across Scotland by offering a development fund and an award accreditation. 


Cycling Friendly Campus internship 

What is the internship?

Funded by Transport Scotland, supported by Cycling Scotland and managed administratively by Bright Green Business, the Cycling Friendly Campus internship programme complements the development fund and award accreditation, all working towards supporting campuses become cycling friendly. In 2019/20, 12 colleges and universities across Scotland will be supported by Campus Cycling Officers.

Cycling Friendly Campus Award

The Cycling Friendly Campus Award offers recognition for institutions who are working to improve their campuses in order to increase cycling. The award reflects the efforts taken by colleges and universities to make cycling more accessible for all students and staff. 

We have worked in partnership with Scottish colleges and universities to design and refine the award and it reflects proven solutions to overcoming the common barriers to cycling.

Cycling Friendly Campus Development Fund

What is the fund?
The Cycling Friendly Campus Development Fund supports Scottish colleges and universities to take a leading role in increasing the number of journeys by bike.
Capital projects which focus on improving cycling facilities and physical infrastructure – such as cycle parking, signage and changing facilities – are the key focus on this funding opportunity.

Why apply?
With significant investment dedicated to increasing cycling, the Cycling Friendly Development Fund provides an excellent opportunity to make a real difference to your campus. 

How much is available?
It is expected that Cycling Scotland will award individual grants of up to £25,000. Applications for less than £5,000 may still be considered if it can be evidenced that the project is likely to have a sufficient impact on cycling rates. The fund is currently closed but we are hoping to reopen in August / September 2019. 

Who can apply?
The Cycling Friendly Campus Development Fund is open to all Scottish colleges and universities (and associated organisations) who are actively working to promote cycling as a sustainable travel choice. Projects must be focused on campuses located in Scotland.
