£400,000 funding set to boost walking and cycling levels

We can’t wait to see the impact these new projects will have within their communities – supporting people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds across the capital to lead active and healthy lives.

Executive Director of The London Marathon Charitable Trust

London’s Walking and Cycling Commissioner, Will Norman, said: “We’ve seen a huge rise in walking and cycling in recent years as more and more Londoners choose sustainable ways to travel around the capital. The grants awarded by TfL to community groups across London will help support people from all backgrounds to walk and cycle – which is a vital part of building a better, greener London for everyone.”

LMCT is the parent charity of London Marathon Events (LME), the organisers of RideLondon, the world’s greatest festival of cycling. RideLondon is set to return on Sunday 28 May 2023, with events featuring the iconic RideLondon-Essex 100-mile challenge, along with the RideLondon-Essex 60 and 30-mile rides and the ever-popular RideLondon FreeCycle, which gives riders of all ages and abilities a rare chance to cycle on traffic-free roads in central London. It will be the 10th anniversary of the hugely popular event, which was established by the Mayor of London in 2013 as an Olympic legacy event from the 2012 London Games.
