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.
