Local Authority allocations from the emergency active travel fund are intended to be spent principally on infrastructure measures, not on cycle training. Funding for cycle training has been made available through the Bikeability programme. We are currently considering expanding the range of training options that can be funded through Bikeability, including adult and family training.
