This year, London Cycling Campaign is again administering grants of up to £5000 on behalf of Transport for London's Community Cycling Fund for London (CCFL), with up to 30 projects expected to benefit.
Community groups and grass roots organisations are invited to bid for the grants from 5 to 19 March 2012.
The CCFL grants fund cycling projects to help Londoners of all ages and backgrounds to get cycling.
Projects funded in the past include bike recycling projects for young people, after-school cycling clubs, and cycle training for women.
Case studies and the CCFL annual reports are available on the LCC website.
Mayor of London Boris Johnson said, "This funding provides support to budding cyclists in local communities and helps to nurture the grassroots of cycling in London."
In 2012, the CCFL is also accepting funding applications that include cycling activities geared towards the Olympics.
LCC Grants Officer Mags Reinig said, "The CCFL has helped more than 18,000 Londoners to get cycling since 2007, and we're looking forward to working with all the new projects funded in 2012 so they can make a real difference to people's lives and communities."
You can download an application pack from the LCC website.
