Cycle Legacy – Small Grant Fund

One of the greatest sporting events on the planet will be racing along the roads of Cambridgeshire this summer.

On Monday 7 July, Cambridge will host the start of the third stage of  ‘Le Tour De France’ 2014.   The riders will set off by Parkers Piece, cycling through the historic city streets and then into the beautiful south Cambridgeshire countryside before heading down to London for the conclusion of the stage on The Mall.

In celebration of this exciting event, Cambridgeshire County Council announces the Cycle Legacy Small Grant Fund.

Small grants are now available and will be awarded to local groups and organisations to support activities or events linked to and inspired by cycling or the race.  We would like you to design and deliver activities within your community that involve and motivate people to create a lasting and positive legacy to mark this historic occasion for Cambridgeshire.

Each grant will be up to a maximum of £500 and additional funding or support in kind will be expected.

The grants are being awarded in three rounds. The deadlines for applications for each round are 17 January, 7 March and 11 April.

For more details and how to apply for a Cycle Legacy Small Grant, please see the attached information.
