Cycling Facilities Fund

With more than 100 EOIs received to date, we have now paused taking in any further EOIs. 

For those who have already submitted an EOI, thank you for your interest and for taking the time to submit your proposal to the Cycling Facilities Fund.

We will continue to provide further updates here.

The Cycling Facilities Fund aims to support cycling facility projects across Scotland and welcomes proposals from all areas through an £8M fund, made possible through a new £4 million commitment from Scottish Government and £4 million from sportscotland through National Lottery funds. 

Please read the guidelines prior to submitting an expression of interest to ensure your group and project fit the criteria. 

Submission dates monthly are on the first of each month until the fund is fully committed.

Design guidance for cycling facilities

In addition to the datasheets available here, we have access to draft guidance prepared by British Cycling on cycling hubs, school, park or urban cycling facilities. If you require design advice on these please contact us on
