30 Years of Cycling Projects

This year we are celebrating our 30th birthday and to mark this special anniversary, we will be hosting a series of nationwide events highlighting the impact and reach of the organisation’s work. We will also be using this milestone as an opportunity to raise vital funds so that we can continue to support people with disabilities and differing needs to engage in our various cycling programmes across the UK.

Cycling Projects was established in 1991 as a local scheme aimed at promoting new cycle routes within the region of Greater Manchester. The initiative then grew and developed in to a much needed charitable organisation delivering inclusive cycling activities across the North West of England. Fast forward to 2021 and Cycling Projects has now become the largest disability cycling charity in the UK, supporting thousands of people of all ages and abilities up and down the country, giving them the opportunity to cycle on a regular basis through its successful engagement community programmes.

Our 30th anniversary events will include the UK’s biggest ever inclusive cycle relay challenge - an event where participants and cyclists from all over the country will be invited to take part in various activities - known as #challenge30. We will also be organising an online raffle and hosting a celebratory gala awards event, to thank our supporters and to recognise the charity’s achievements over the past 30 years.

In light of the recent pandemic, our services are required more than ever, with the need to support the most fragile and vulnerable in our society. To enable us to continue this essential work, we have set a fundraising target of £20,000 which will enable the charity to create new ‘Bike Buddy’ cycle engagement programmes for vulnerable people at home and in care. Your support will help make a real difference to those that really need our assistance, so please give what you can and click on the link below to make your donation. Thank you.
