British Cycling and Sport England are working closely to develop a national network of cycling facilities across England through a £15 million investment programme from the UK Government. The Places to Ride programme will provide funding to any not-for-profit organisation that is developing cycling activity in their community through new or improvement of existing dedicated cycling facilities.
The programme will support small-to-medium-scale facility improvements or equipment, through to large-scale new build facilities across all types of cycling.
Two levels of funding are available:
- Small-scale grants of between £1,000 and £50,000; Applicants are likely to be clubs (existing or new), community organisations, education establishments or charitable organisations.
- Large-scale grants of up to £500,000. Applicants are likely to be local authorities, charitable organisations or community organisations.
Organisations are to provide match funding. The target is 50% but it must be no lower than 25%.
Applications can be submitted at any time up until 12:00am on the 15th January 2021.
Decisions will be made every twelve weeks.
