The #AndSheCycles campaign aims to address the barriers faced by teenage girls and young women when cycling.

This fund is open to groups of young women such as guide groups, school groups and youth groups.

The funding is available to help these groups develop and implement plans to help break down the barriers young women face when choosing to cycle.  

Up to £2000 per group could be available to help purchase necessary equipment to help support more young women cycling.  

Previous applicants have secured funding for:
