Cycling Friendly Community
Use cycling to break down barriers and bring people together in your community.
From mental health groups to homeless charities, disability groups to refugee charities, the Cycling Friendly Community programme supports organisations across Scotland to take a leading role in increasing the number of people who cycle.
We provide funding as well as an award accreditation.
Cycling Friendly Community development fund
What? Funding for bikes or facilities that make cycling more accessible.
Why? The fund makes it possible for more people, regardless of background or ability, to enjoy the benefits of being on a bike.
Who? Community groups in Scotland who are looking to increase opportunities for people to cycle can apply.
How? The fund is now closed, but to register your interest for future funding we encourage you to contact us.
Any specific enquiries related to support for community groups during the Covid-19 crisis should be directed to Pete Mills, Development Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Cycling Friendly Community award
The nationally recognised award celebrates community groups who are taking a leading role in ensuring that anyone, anywhere can enjoy the benefits of cycling. If you're creating opportunities for people to cycle, the award process is a support tool to help you become Cycling Friendly.
