Help your students to stay active, support their mental health and save on transport costs. 

Our Cycling Friendly Campus programme supports colleges and universities to promote cycling as a healthy and sustainable travel option for staff and students through a development fund, an award accreditation and an internship programme. 

What? Funding of up to £25,000 can be used for facility improvements, bikes and bike equipment that will make it easier for students and staff to cycle. 

Why? By improving facilities, more students and staff will be able to stay healthy, support their wellbeing and save on transport costs.

Who? Colleges and universities looking to promote cycling as a sustainable travel choice can apply to the fund.

How? Funding for 2022/23 has now been fully allocated, please register your interest in the next available funding round.


The award recognises colleges and universities that are improving their campuses and making it easier and more accessible to cycle. They're are supported through each step of the process towards becoming Cycling Friendly, from the initial registration to assessment.
