CTC cycling Case Study - Sam Sahdra of Handsworth Ladies
Sam proves you’re never too old to start cycling Case Study
Sam Sahdra reckons cycling with the Handsworth Ladies is like being part of one big, happy family. Not that Sam got off to the greatest of starts when she first considered taking up cycling. She saw her grandchildren riding their bikes, asked them if they would help her to cycle – and they said she was too old!

CTC cycling Case Study - Mandy Coxon
Mandy’s on a two-wheeled road to recovery Case Study
Back in the dark days, Mandy Coxon had to make a determined effort to remain standing behind the safety line on the station platform as her train came in after work. She would often sit in a corner and cry when she got home, just thankful to have made it through another day.

Project Objectives

Community Cycle Club

Cycling UK has evidenced that cycling can play a major role to address the impact of social, economic and health inequalities across the United Kingdom.

Cycling UK believes that to get more people cycling across the UK there is need to deliver tailored projects that can introduce cycling to communities across geographical regions in an inclusive and sustainable manner.  

A Community Cycle Club represents a group of people who organise and participate in a regular cycling activity for the benefit of their existing members or as a service to the wider community. 

The cycling activity can be on-road, off-road, cycle maintenance or even arts based. The group of people may already meet for reasons specific to their local needs e.g. a youth support group, or have formed as a result of their desire to establish a regular cycling activity for benefit of the local community.
