 Local organisations are being encouraged to bid for funding for projects to get more people cycling - Banner

Community groups in H&F are being encouraged to apply for grants for schemes to help get more people cycling.

Transport for London’s Cycling Grants programme, now in its fourth year, helps groups who are traditionally under-represented in cycling, to get pedalling.

The scheme is managed by Groundwork London and this year has £240,000 available to help up to 30 groups deliver new cycling initiatives.

These can be anything from courses teaching basic cycle maintenance, to guided rides and more. Projects will receive up to £10,000 over three years.

Applications now open at www.cyclinggrants.london  and close on 17 September.

You can read H&F Council’s cycling strategy here, which outlines our plans to make it easier and safer for more people to riding.
