The Community Cycling Fund for London (CCFL) is accepting grant applications from grassroots cycling projects from 20 May until 3 June 2011.
Grants of up to £5000 are available for community groups to start new initiatives to get more people on their bikes or to further develop existing cycling programmes.
LCC’s community team supports hundreds of applicants through the application process every year.
Although only a limited number of grants are available, the community cycling officers try their best to direct those who aren’t eligible towards other funding sources and help unsuccessful applicants with advice and useful contacts.
This year, the CCFL will fund a total of 25 community projects to deliver local rides, cycle training, events, bike maintenance sessions, and to encourage people of all ages to get cycling.
NOTE: This funding round is only open from Friday 20 May until midday Friday 3 June 2011.
The LCC has been administering the CCFL since 2007, encouraging over 15,000 Londoners to get cycling through this funding programme.
The Community Cycling Fund for London is funded by Transport for London and the Big Lottery's Active Travel Consortium.
