Glasgow Cycle Festival Blog

Boathouse Youth Blackpool Case Study
Back in 2009, the CTC community cycling offering was in its infancy and Boathouse Youth (BHY) was just beginning its work in the deprived community of South Shore, Blackpool, an area which is in the worst 1% of most deprived wards in the country.

Project Objectives

Bike Club Logo

Bike Club's main aims are to:

  • encourage young people to use cycling as a means of transport so they can take part in more activities beyond the school day
  • make cycling an important part of young people’s lives – as recreation, sport, exercise, a ‘green’ form of transport – and just for fun!
  • help kids and youths to discover the freedom that cycling brings

How does Bike Club do this?

  • A wide range of cycling activities for children and young people, as well as for parents
  • Cycling activities that include everyone, like children and young people from black and minority ethnic groups (BME groups), those from low-income families, and children and young people with disabilities or other additional needs
  • Tackling parents’ concerns about letting their children cycle
  • Empowering children, young people, parents, teachers, youth workers, volunteers and others to promote and implement cycling activities
