British Cycling, Sport England and the Department for Culture Media and Sport have joined together in partnership to provide this £15 million programme over the next three years.
The programme is designed to support a lasting legacy from the 2019 UCI Road World Championships in Yorkshire and to ensure that the championships have a far-reaching and lasting impact on cycling participation across the country.
The key objectives of the programme are to inspire people to ride; connect the community and build a lasting legacy.
The programme aims are:
- Encourage more people from a range of different backgrounds regardless of gender, age, ability or ethnicity to engage with cycling.
- Invest in opportunities that connect local communities and address barriers to engaging with cycling.
- A lasting legacy of active environments that provide high quality and affordable opportunities to engage with cycling now and in the future.
