Dedicated cycling facilities provide safe, traffic-free environments for any cyclist of any ability to participate, train, compete and – most importantly – have fun whilst riding a bike.

British Cycling is working closely with Sport England to develop a national network of new cycling facilities, making use of a £15 million investment programme called Places to Ride.

The funding is available to organisations and can be used for anything from equipment packages to activate your local space, through to a brand new cycling facility.

Please note that in order to be eligible, school applications must demonstrate how their project will help deliver extra-curricular cycling activities and link to the wider community.
