Cycle Friendly Secondary School

Cycle Friendly Secondary School

Cycle Friendly Secondary School supports more pupils to enjoy the benefits of cycling and ride their bikes more often.

Development Fund

The grant opportunity of up to £4,000 and is now open to all secondary schools in Scotland who are committed to increasing opportunities for pupils and staff to cycle.

Just a few examples of successfully funded projects include:

  • Bike maintenance equipment and training (SCQF qualifications available).
  • Bikes where there is a need (usually in areas of deprivation/remote locations with wide catchments).
  • Events and promotion.
  • Bike recycling

Developing cycle champions among pupils will be a component of successful bids as they develop their project skills and help shape a project relevant to their peers. Cycling Scotland will host a Pupil Cycle Champion shared learning event in November to share best practice and equip teachers and pupils to deliver a successful cycling project. 

The closing date of the fund is 4th October 2018.

We encourage you to contact our development officer to discuss potential projects and get more information. Contact mattwilberton@cycling.scot or 0141 229 5446.
