Government unveils £110m increase in investment for cycling

The Department for Transport has published a document about an increase in funding for Cycling England over the next three years. Announced on Monday, it will get £20m in 2008/9 and in the following two years will receive £60m. Since it's inception in 2005 Cycling England has received £10m a year to promote cycling. The funds are used to develop cycling in England by creating local cycling schemes and training and education through local authorities.

Local Authorities have to bid for funding for their schemes. This year's deadline is 1st February, so get your skates on councils...
