VOLUNTARY and community organisations in West Yorkshire are being invited to apply for grants for adult cycling projects.
Go:cycling has grants of up to £10,000 available for cycling projects that encourage people to use cycling in their day-to-day lives, take up cycling or cycle more.
Initiatives to promote utility cycling, in particular, cycling to work and the increased use of West Yorkshire’s cycle infrastructure also qualify.
As well as encouraging cycling, projects should be able to demonstrate how they support the third West Yorkshire Local Transport Plan’s three main objectives of supporting economic growth, making progress towards a low carbon transport network and enhancing people’s quality of life.
“We will consider projects that are aimed at West Yorkshire people aged over 16 and which demonstrate the potential to promote and increase cycling,” said Go:cycling co-ordinator Carl Tinson.
“This can be an entirely new activity or the development of an existing one.
“While grants can be up to £10,000, we want to use the funding to seed new projects across the county so are keen to hear about small-scale proposals that don’t have alternative funding sources.
