Cycling with Confidence Scheme
The Cycling with Confidence scheme is part of the Active Quarter partnership, funded by the Department for Transport through West Northamptonshire Council and Delapré Abbey.
This initiative, specifically designed for individuals residing in West Northamptonshire who can ride a bike but seek an extra boost of confidence for their everyday cycling journeys has, already seen more than 30 people taking part.
The project which ran from November 2023 to December 2023 was offered completely free of charge to participants. And all those that have completed the course have received either a £100 gift voucher or a free bike.
It is hoped that additional funding will be made available in 2024 so that we will be able to take advantage of some bike friendly summer weather. As we were only able to run the scheme in November and December due to funding delays were the same to be offered in May and June then we could see a significant uptick in participation
