About British Cycling - Events Funding
The funds, which are being supported by Sport England's Sector Renewal programme, will enable organisers of national, regional, and entry-level events to bid for funding to support event delivery, with a particular focus on supporting events targeted at youth and junior riders, para-cyclists, women and girls and diverse ethnic communities.
Further details of the two funds can be found below:
- Covid Recovery Fund: Organisers can apply for a grant of up to £300 (regional events) and £500 (national events) to support event delivery, and the fund is open for applications across all disciplines for events taking place until March 2023.
- Entry-Level Events Fund: Organisers can apply for a grant of up to £200 towards any event which includes a Go-Ride Racing, Go-Race, Go-BMX, Go-Cross or Go-MTB race, which is specifically geared towards novice racers and those looking to try a new discipline. Events can either be standalone or bolted on to existing activity.
In a similar story to that currently being experienced by many sports, participation levels in cycling events remain lower than before the pandemic, despite the removal of Covid-19 restrictions. The most recent figures from Sport England's Active Lives survey, published in April, showed that there are now 1.3 million more inactive adults than pre-pandemic levels, with the greatest differences seen individual sports, women, young people, disabled people and people from diverse ethnic communities.
