Grants are available until March 26 and aim to help new cyclists from all backgrounds experience a greener, healthier way of travelling.

The fund’s cycling officer Rosie Tharp said: “We look forward to receiving many applications again this year and urge all community groups in Greenwich that are currently under-represented, to take this opportunity to get cycling.”
