  • Mission statement

    Life Cycle aims to increase everyday cycling of people of all ages and backgrounds for the benefit of their health and the environment.

    We encourage and enable people to cycle by providing tailored advice, information, training and hands-on support so that they can overcome barriers that prevent them from giving cycling a go.

    We also offer practical, targeted support to individuals with disabilities, mental health illness, offenders, isolated older people and disadvantaged young people through a range of “Inclusive Cycling Projects”.
