Big Bike Revival Scotland

Find out more about funding available and events taking place across Scotland

The Big Bike Revival in Scotland is an initiative to support the Scottish Government’s vision of 10% of journeys by bike by 2020. It aims to get more people cycling, which is the mission that sits at the core of Cycling UK, its members and the network of sustainable cycling groups that it supports.

The Big Bike Revival offers organisations the tools to engage with the community and the funding to present opportunities for individuals to repair old bikes that have been lying in the shed for years, learn how to keep them serviceable and gain the confidence to make local journeys by bike that replace trips typically made by motorised vehicles.

Want to get involved?

Organisations across Scotland are invited to run a range of Big Bike Revival events and led cycle rides that engage the community during May and June. There are small grants of £1000 available until 2 June to help deliver:

  • Opportunities to get bikes fixed, and people taught how to maintain them
  • Events that showcase a range of bikes that meet different needs
  • Cycle training to help people feel more confident to cycle on the road
  • Led rides that help people find and use their local cycle paths and low traffic routes

Apply for a grant

There are dedicated Big Bike Revival Regional Development Officers who can help every step of the way.

For further information or to receive an application pack, please contact shona.morris@cyclinguk.org
