The Cycling UK Roll of Honour

going the extra mile
Awards for volunteers

Cycling UK's Going the Extra Mile awards scheme acknowledges the incredible contribution made by volunteers to our mission to enable millions more people to cycle

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

Lifetime achievement awards

Certificates of Appreciation are sent to individuals or groups that have completed voluntary tasks with Cycling UK for a certain number of years and have been nominated for recognition:

  • 10 years - Bronze award
  • 20 years - Silver award
  • 30 years - Gold award
  • 40 years - Platinum award

These awards are usually given in person where possible and are accompanied by a personalised thank you card from our chief executive.

Lifetime Achievement Awards

This is a list of the exceptional volunteers for Cycling UK who have been awarded a Certificate of Appreciation for their long service and dedication to encouraging more people to cycle over many years, whether as committee members, campaigners or performing other roles. They have gone above and beyond to dedicate their lives to enable others to enjoy the wonderful benefits of cycling.
