Get involved

We’re Pumped Up to cycle. Are you?

Join our Pumped Up Crew and help us inspire and encourage more people to start and continue cycling.

We’re offering three levels of involvement depending on the time you have to commit.

At the basic level, you can become a PROMOTE volunteer, using your social media influencing skills to spread the word. If you have a little more time on your hands, why not become a PEDAL volunteer, organising a ride or taking friends and family out on their bikes with you?

Or if you want the full Pumped Up Crew experience, join us as a PARTNER volunteer and help us with cycling provision in your area, campaigning or take part in a bike maintenance session.
