Community Cycle Clubs
Community Cycle Clubs are at the heart of our programme to bring about sustained change and to encourage more people to cycle. We have more than 200 diverse clubs across England and Scotland, which have engaged with more than 50,000 people.
Clubs run in all sorts of places including with older people’s groups, youth groups, workplaces, refugee charities, mosques and veterans’ groups. People who joined a Community Cycling Club reported they were:
- Cycling more often
- Starting to meet physical activity guidelines
- Feeling healthier, happier and better connected to their communities
- Starting to use a bike for short journeys and commuting
What is a Community Cycle Club?
A Community Cycle Club is a group of people who come together to do cycling for whatever purpose they choose.
The programme connects individuals to their community to build social networks, feel well and enjoy being active by cycling. The aim could be to reduce isolation, improve health and wellbeing, develop skills and education, or just have fun.
Cycling UK Development Officers work with clubs to establish and increase the clubs skills, capacity and confidence. This helps ensure activities are led to a high standard by safe and qualified leaders and can better engage with a wider audience.
