Going the Extra Mile: Volunteer Awards 2019 shortlist announced

Blaen Roberts of Liver Pedlaa Pool Community Cycling Club
Blaen Roberts, founder of Liver Pedlaa Pool Community Cycling Club - finalist in our Outstanding Young Achiever category
Cycling UK's Volunteer Awards 2019 were launched on 14 February with dozens of nominations submitted by our staff, members and supporters for outstanding volunteers in cycling from all walks of life and all parts of the UK. We are delighted to now start announcing the three finalists in each category before the winners are announced in London at our Volunteer Celebration on Saturday 15 June

Our amazing volunteers perform many roles to enable more people to enjoy cycling. From boosting people's mental and physical health to accomplishing a personal goal, the groups, projects and programmes we support have many different aims but all are united by the fact that they use cycling to achieve great things and rely on selfless volunteers to do so.

There are also dedicated and passionate individuals who lobby ceaselessly for better infrastructure and facilities for cyclists, both on an off-road.

Find out who has been nominated for their outstanding contributions to our mission as we release the names of those shortlisted for our Volunteer Awards 2019
