Community Cycle Clubs

Community Cycle Clubs

At Cycling UK, we are committed to ensuring cycling is open to all, that communities everywhere can enjoy cycling. One of the ways we achieve this is through our Community Cycle Club programme.

A community cycle club is a group of people who come together to do cycling for whatever purpose they choose!

It starts with Cycling UK consulting with community groups to determine how cycling can play a role in their current activities and help them to meet their objectives.

Whether these objectives relate to reducing isolation, improving health and wellbeing, developing skills or just having fun, Cycling UK officers work with them to increase their delivery skills, capacity and confidence.

Mental health support, older people’s groups, health organisations, youth groups, workplaces, refugee charities and veteran groups are just some of the settings in which Cycling UK has delivered community cycle clubs.

Cycling UK has established over 200 new and diverse clubs across England and Scotland which have engaged over 50,000 people. People taking part in community cycle clubs report that they are cycling more often and are starting to meet physical activity guidelines. They also report feeling healthier, happier and better connected to their communities following their involvement with a community cycle club.
