Part of the role will be to develop community cycle clubs or other sustainable community cycling groups.

of cycling (e.g. as a leisure activity). The resultant network of clubs will present an opportunity to address health, social and economic inequalities across a designated region. Officers will be tasked with building capacity and sustainability through the development of volunteers, the training of leaders and proactively networking Cycling UK groups across a region.
