Cumbrian cycling group the Watchtree Wheelers have expressed their happiness at being awarded £50,000 to continue the sporting and olympic legacy in the region.
“We are delighted with the funding support we have received from Sport England and would like to thank our regular users and supporters for all the work they’ve put into making the application a success.
“This funding will allow us to resurface a large area of unused broken concrete and create a cycle track which is suitable for our specially adapted cycles. This new route will follow the perimeter of the nature reserve allowing riders to enjoy the views, sounds and smells of the wild flower meadows, lowland scrub and the woodlands.”
