TfL’s Cycling Grants London has awarded the Wandle Valley Regional Park Trust funding in order to provide better access to bikes and cycling for Wandle Valley residents.
With the news arriving at the same time as the launch of the Wandle Valley Regional Park Trust’s new strategy, Project Coordinator Dan Cudmore thinks it couldn’t be timed better:
“This funding will allow us to provide more regular access to cycling for those within the Wandle Valley which will lead to improved health and well-being for residents and users of the Wandle Trail and the Regional Park”
The project, which is aimed at those new to cycling, particularly families, will break down barriers that stop people from cycling.
Cycling Grants London is a grants programme funded by Transport for London and administered by Groundwork London. The programme is aimed at groups that are traditionally under-represented in cycling (through income, health, ability, skills and access to information or equipment).
The programme aims to promote safer and more liveable streets by challenging current attitudes to transport, healthy living and the public realm. We want to promote cycling not only as a means of transport, but also a route to greater personal freedom, better health and more cohesive communities.
