“For the true potential of pedal power to be realised, it must be accessible to all. As a brand with British roots, we’re proud to be able to support organisations here on home soil. The City Academies concept represents a fresh new way of nurturing new cycling talent, who represent the future of British cycling.”
- Simon Mottram, Founder of the Rapha Foundation.
“The British Cycling City Academies project is a key part of our wider strategy to make cycling more inclusive, more diverse and more reflective of our society. By making pathways into participation and competition more accessible, we will be enabling more talented cyclists and potential champions of the future to shine, regardless of their background.”
