The role of Trustees

The role of Trustees

Volunteering for Cycling UK as a Trustee can be hugely rewarding. It is a great way to make a positive contribution to Cycling UK, to cycling and to the well-being of the UK.

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Trustee for Cycling UK.  We are the largest cycling charity in the UK, with the largest membership base and a strong voice in Westminster and the devolved nations. We are passionate about enabling people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to cycle safely, easily and enjoyably.

This is a really exciting time following our recent rebranding and the huge success of our Big Bike Revival programme. Although we’ve been around since 1878, few people have heard of us – despite our immense influence on the world of cycling and the strength of our membership. That’s starting to change and we’re keen to recruit Trustees who can help us make the most of this opportunity to fulfil our mission of championing cycling for everyone and increase our impact.  

Behind the scenes we have also been modernising our governance to create a smaller, more skilled Board able to provide clear, strategic direction. Trustees are vital to our continued success and our application pack explains what we are looking for and how to find out more if you are interested.

As well as a passion for cycling, Trustees must have the essential skills, knowledge and experience required of an effective charity trustee and be able to offer a specialist skill we need. We are also keen to have a diverse and inclusive Board with people coming from a wide range of backgrounds, places and perspectives.
