Why you should get involved

Cycling is becoming increasingly important to people and communities as a way of tackling the climate emergency and reducing pollution. We need to get more people cycling, especially those who live in disadvantaged communities and who are living on low incomes.

There has never been a more exciting time for people who value cycling to join the Board.
