Any community groups with ideas for encouraging cycling that might meet the criteria for Cycling Scotland grants?

"Communities can apply for grants of up to £5,000 to deliver local cycling projects. The purpose of the Cycle Friendly and Sustainable Communities Fund (CFSCF) is to support groups to encourage cycling in their community and to deliver a sustainable cycling project that will encourage more people to travel by bike.

This Transport Scotland funded grant scheme enables community groups to support and deliver projects with an overall aim to increase the number of local journeys by bike. Reducing single occupancy car use and increasing active travel options will result in reduced local transport related carbon emissions and increased health and wellbeing of the community."

More on the Cycling Scotland website here. 

Cycling Scotland also have another grant scheme "Cycle Friendly Community Award" which offers grants of up to £20K. More here.
