Cash up for Grabs for Cycling Projects

Got an idea that will help boost cycling in the Lancaster and Morecambe District? If so, Lancaster City Council's Cycling Demonstration Town Team wants to hear from you.

With £10,000 up for grabs to local groups of people who can prove they can make a difference to cycling in the district, the team are hoping to encourage locally based cycling projects to come forward and apply for a share of the spoils.

These might include projects that seek to publicise or promote the take up of cycling, increase skills and training, organise rides or one-off cycling events, increase cycle commuting (to work or to school) or simply increase access to cycling.

Bids for grants (up to a maximum of £1,500) are open to all groups within the Lancaster district although priority will be given to those who have not received CDT funding before.

The deadline for applications is Friday 27th March 2009.

• Application forms can be downloaded from www.celebratingcycling.org, by telephoning 01524 582392 or by email to celebratingcycling@lancaster.gov.uk.
