Our charitable activities span a wide range of programmes: from promoting participation in cycling through groups, rides and individually; lobbying for relevant cycling infrastructure and safety through our Space for Cycling campaign; and via community based cycling initiatives to enable communities to adopt cycling as a means transport and realise the economic, health and wellbeing benefits, through projects such as the Big Bike Revival. Every year we help 100s of thousands of people to take up cycling and to cycle more.
