Closing Date: 25 June, 2024

Type of Fund: National

About this Funding:

Cycling UK is offering grants of up to £3,500 for voluntary and community cycle groups across England to deliver projects and activities that:

  • Encourage people who don’t cycle to cycle.
  • Encourage people to cycle more often.
  • Increase short cycling trips.
  • Improve the perception of cycling safety.
  • Improve people’s confidence to cycle.

For the Summer 2024 funding round, there is a focus on encouraging partners to inspire participants to return to subsequent events, to help sustain increases in cycling, and to help make a much bigger difference through Big Bike Revival.

The Big Bike Revival Grants Programme will support events and activities that use the ‘fix-learn-ride’ model to provide sessions for people groups that are underrepresented in cycling, such as:

  • Women.
  • People on low incomes.
  • People who suffer from poor mental health.
  • People who are not meeting physical activity guidelines.
  • People who are lacking confidence.
  • Unemployed people.
  • Military veterans.
  • People who are experiencing substance abuse.
  • Ethnic minorities.
  • Refugees and asylum seekers.
  • People who are experiencing transport poverty.

Funding can be used for costs including but not limited to:

  • Staff costs.
  • Volunteer expenses, such as refreshments and travel.
  • Equipment purchases, including tools, bikes, bike parking, locks, helmets, high-vis jackets, and pumps.
  • Equipment hiring, including cones, high-vis jackets, helmets, or bikes.
  • Consumables, including brake pads, inner tubes, cables, lubricant, or small parts.
  • Venue hires or location fees.
  • Participant refreshments such as reasonable drinks and snacks.
  • Promotion costs.
  • Transport, including transportation of goods to and from the event location.
  • Personal Protection Equipment.

Funding is for activities delivered between 29 March 2024 and 31 October 2024.

The deadline for applications is 25 June 2024.
