Going the Extra Mile: how to recognise and thank outstanding volunteers

Cycling UK feels that our outstanding volunteers deserve to be appreciated for their effort, energy and enthusiasm for cycling. If you know a cycling volunteer, why not thank them with one of our Going the Extra Mile awards?

Thank you letters and certificates

Our editable thank you certificate (downloadable below) can be personalised with the details of who you are thanking, whether it is a group or individual, and what they have done for cycling. We can also arrange a letter of thanks from our Chief Executive Paul Tuohy. These can be given to anybody who has performed a voluntary task that has benefited cycling in some way. 

Certificate of Appreciation

These are aimed at anyone who has truly 'Gone the Extra Mile' for cycling - perhaps a long-standing group Secretary or Treasurer, or perhaps somebody who has organised a large event for many years that has enabled lots more people to cycle. You can nominate somebody to receive this award at any time of year - if successful, the nominee will receive a framed certificate, which can be presented at a particular event to mark this very special occasion. They will also receive a letter of congratulation from Cycling UK. 

Lifetime Achievement Awards

These are digital medals and certificates for individuals or groups that have been completing voluntary tasks with Cycling UK for at least five years or more - there are awards in different colours as follows:

  • 5 years - Bronze award
  • 10 years - Silver award
  • 15 years - Gold award
  • 20 years - Platinum award

How to request an award or certificate

To nominate somebody for any of the above awards or certificates, please contact the Volunteering Team

Going the Extra Mile: our Annual Volunteer Awards

Every year, we acknowledge the outstanding Cycling UK volunteers, events, programmes and campaigns of the previous 12 months. A shortlist of three is drawn up for each category, with all of them being invited to attend a special celebratory event, where the winners are announced and receive their trophies from a special guest.

National Volunteers' Week 1 to 8 June 2019

Commemorate, celebrate, thank and recognise the amazing contribution of volunteers in cycling throughout the UK with a week just for them! A range of resources such as bunting, banners, posters and logos is available on request from the Volunteering Team.
