This Government remains committed to encouraging more people to engage in sport and physical activity, regardless of their background or level of ability.

The Government's Sporting Future strategy published in December 2015 set out that, in future, public investment in sport and physical activity will be based on the contribution that organisations can make to five broad outcomes: Physical Wellbeing; Mental Wellbeing; Individual Development; Social and Community Development; and Economic Development. Cycling, including off-road cycling, is included as part of the strategy. Officials at DCMS are engaged with Defra officials as they develop their Environment Strategy.
