Bikeability receives £20 million government investment

10 March 2022/Categories: Active Travel & Travel Planning, Coronavirus, Net-Zero


Department for Transport will invest £20 million to ensure more children and families can cycle safely. The government will support vital cycling skills through Bikeability and encourage instructors to join the sector to deliver its cycle training programme next year. This funding builds on commitment to decarbonise our transport network and build back greener from COVID-19.

Bikeability has trained over 3.6 million children since 2007 and DfT has now announced record funding to ensure even more are equipped with the skills, confidence, and knowledge to cycle on our roads and have the opportunity to gain other essential life skills.

This funding has the potential to deliver half a million training places for children and their families, supporting even more people to introduce active travel into their everyday lives.

 

Trudy Harrison, Active Travel Minister, said:

“Cycling helps both our planet and our wellbeing and learning to cycle is also an important life skill.”

 

Emily Cherry, CEO, Bikeability Trust, said:

“We have already trained more than 3.6 million children how to cycle confidently and safely. This record investment will help us to achieve our ambition of offering every child cycle training.”
