Bike Club has been formed by a consortium of established national charities that are passionate about using cycling to help children and young people explore, learn and keep healthy. By working together as a team, the expertise of these three organisations is combined to make Bike Club an exciting project.

CTC, the national cycling charity, inspires and helps people to cycle and keep cycling, whatever kind of cycling they do or would like to do. Over a century’s experience tells us that cycling is more than useful transport; it makes you feel good, gives you a sense of freedom and creates a better environment for everyone.
