Thirty community groups have been awarded cycling grants by Transport for London (TfL) to encourage more Londoners to get on their bikes.

The mayor has targeted to increase the proportion of people walking, cycling and using public transport to 80% of journey by 2041 and the grants are intended to help this.

The projects awarded funds include a scheme to train young offenders to become bike mechanics, cycling groups for disabled and homeless people, and a cycle training and maintenance project for the Hindu Bengali community.

Will Norman, London’s Walking and Cycling Commissioner, said: “By giving Londoners of all abilities, ages and backgrounds the confidence to cycle, we can improve their health and quality of life.”
