Volunteer and Voluntary Group of the Year

The Cycling UK Volunteer of the Year Awards are for the people and groups throughout the UK and Ireland who deserve the most recognition for their achievements as volunteers.

Our members are at the heart of Cycling UK, helping us to get 1 million people cycling and keep cycling in the past year, and contributing millions of volunteer hours in support of our work. Whether that's running well over 13,000 led rides, supporting and promoting our campaign actions, marshalling and running Dr Bike support at major events, or helping people to overcome personal barriers to cycling, we cannot miss the fact that so much of our charity's successes are because of our volunteers. We want to celebrate this fact by recognising those who are making such fantastic contributions to Cycling UK's work, through our national Volunteer of the Year Awards.

The categories for our Volunteer of the Year Awards are

- Best Volunteer Achievement

- Best Campaign

- Best Group Achievement or Cycling Event

- Best Community Project

- Young Achiever of the Year

There is also a National Volunteer of the Year who is selected from the winners of the above awards, and receives Cycling UK Council’s highest award for services to cycling, the Arthur Moss Medallion. The Moss award is a polished piece of Portland stone which was presented to Cycling UK by the family of Arthur Moss. Arthur was not only a former CTC President, Chair and Vice Chair but an extraordinary community servant in his home county of Dorset, serving as Mayor of Wareham. The Moss Medallion, and its predecessor the Bird Award, have recognised voluntary achievement in cycling since the 1930s.

Nominated by Cycling UK's members or groups, the winners are selected by Cycling UK's board of trustees (or Council) and the awards presented at the Members' Annual Get Together. A simple nomination form starts the process off. The winners are not just local heroes: reading their stories is an inspiration to anyone interested in cycling; from the local to the national level, and these awards are a just recognition of their achievements.
