TWO cycling groups have scooped £3,500 grant to help them encourage more riding in the borough.

Transport for London (TfL) gave the money to the Hayes Bigfoot and Penge Go-Ride clubs, which are a two-in-one Bromley based cycling project.

They are community-based groups of cyclists who aim to raise the profile of cycling in Bromley and increase the number of regular cyclists. Their target group includes children and families.

Project leader Reverend Charles Potter said: "When we first set out to create children's cycling clubs across the borough, we knew there was a great need. We want to make organised cycling accessible to every child, to have a cultural shift towards sustainable and healthy means of transport, as well as promote community networking."

The funding was awarded as part of the annual £200,000 Community Cycling Fund for London, a grant scheme funded by TfL and administered by the London Cycling Campaign.
