Aims of the Awards Programme
The primary aim of the Awards Programme is to reward and promote the good work that the Bikeability industry and partners are doing. Secondary aims include collecting a series of ‘case studies’ that can be used both to showcase Bikeability to external audiences, but also help to share examples of best-practice for peer-to-peer learning within the industry.

How the Programme is run
All nominations are assessed against a set of criteria for each award category. Short-listed candidates and/or their nominator will be invited to attend the Awards Ceremony at the National Bikeability Conference to be held in Hereford on Thursday 16th May 2019 at which the winners will be announced and presented with their awards and prizes.
