CYCLINGFUTURES inspiring change

What is Cycling Futures? 

 

It is a ground breaking outreach programme with the aim of creating greater access to cycling within existing National Curriculum frameworks.

 

Cycling Futures is also a campaign organisation to champion the cause of getting cycling firmly supported on the National Curriculum. We believe it should be on the basis that cycling is a life skill, not merely a sport or leisure activity.

 

Cycling, unlike many other sports and physical activities currently supported by the National Curriculum, has a wider set of positive social economic impacts as well as recognised individual health and leisure benefits. 

 

Personal inactivity; a lack of personal mobility in young people hindering access to education, jobs and leisure; traffic congestion and environmental damaged caused by motor vehicles; poor cycling infrastructure which creates the perception of cycling being dangerous; all cost the UK ecomony billions. Inspiring more people to turn to cycling can play a critical part in addressing these issues.

 

Cycling Futures believes providing greater access to cycling at primary schools and by creating inspirational experiences at a younger age is the most effective means of ensuring future behaviour change, healthier life choices and more sustainble individual mobility.

 

Working with its partners Cycling Futures creates and makes available cycling based classroom resource packs and delivers inspirational cycling experinces for school and community groups.
