Nail that New Year’s resolution


If getting into cycling is one of your New Year’s resolutions, we're here to help! We have some exciting opportunities for people that are looking to improve their physical or mental wellbeing through cycling – and those aged 50+ who would like some relaxed support from one of our ‘Cycle Buddies’:

1.  Short rides for wellbeing

Improve your wellbeing in a relaxed, non-competitive environment with our ‘Return to Cycling’ rides.

‘Innovative’ Life Cycle wins Travel Award

Life Cycle was delighted to attend this year’s Travel Awards, hosted by Travelwest. Chief Executive Poppy was accompanied by Life Cycle fundraiser Becky and our lovely instructor/mechanic/ride leader Jacks.

We enjoyed a three course meal in the company of some of the leaders in sustainable business travel – including Rolls Royce, Eat Festivals, GKN Aerospace and Worle School Academy.  It was inspiring to hear about the strides being made by organisations across the West of England, enabling people to choose more active, healthy and sustainable ways of travelling.  

Re-start cycling, without the stress

If you’re looking to improve your physical and / or mental health in a relaxed, non-competitive environment, then our ‘Returning to Cycling’ rides could be just the thing for you! 

Starting Thursday 10th January, we’ll be running a programme of six, short bike rides, which will take place every Thursday until 14th February. Thanks to funding from The Henry Smith Charity and BUPA, there will be no charge for these rides.

Cycle once a week to fight climate change


For those of us that spend most of our time behind a desk, it can be great to get out and about in work time. This October it was a pleasure to step away from the computer screen to attend the Future Economy Network’s recent business breakfast, and meet a diverse range of people from organisations that are committed to achieving a greener future. We were there to discuss today’s hottest topic: Climate Change.

Celebrating our supporters – part 2


As a small charity, raising funds to support our life-changing work is an ongoing challenge. To be successful, it is vital that we clearly demonstrate to our grant funders the positive impact we are having on people’s lives. This means collecting regular feedback from the people we help. By sharing their experiences, they enable us to keep our projects running, and it also helps us to better understand and support those we work with.

Celebrating our supporters – part 1

As a small charity, raising funds to support our life-changing work is an ongoing challenge. We are so grateful to the charitable trusts and foundations whose grants literally keep our projects running. But when an individual goes out of their way to support us, it really touches our hearts. 

Over the coming months we will be celebrating the people who have gone that extra mile to show us they really believe in the work we do. First up:
