Funding and donations to CycleStreets

CycleStreets is a system run for cyclists by cyclists.

Donations will help us develop new features and pay for new server equipment to increase the speed of the system.

CycleStreets Ltd contains a not-for-profit clause in our governing document.

(PayPal will take a small cut of donations.)

Grant funding - can you help?

Grant funding from various sources such as environmental grants, Local Authorities and national organisations, will help us develop CycleStreets even further, more quickly.

Grants in the region of £5,000 - 20,000 would be enormously useful in getting various 'missing bits' in the list below implemented.

Please contact us if you think you might be able to help, or to have a chat further.

Areas for which we need funding are:

  • Major work to improve the cycle routing quality on an ongoing basis
  • Core developer funds, to cover a range of general tasks and ongoing improvements
  • Annual server equipment and colo hosting costs (our excellent hosts are Mythic Beasts)
  • Improving our mobile apps
  • Roadwork data integration
  • OpenID integration
  • Adding the Specific routes feature (the lead developers used to organise Leisurely Rides, and we've long wanted a plotting facility for this!)
  • Improvements to the photo/video addition system, including simpler multiple-photo addition
  • Commenting system for photos and routes
  • Local Authority reporting/updating mechanism
  • Improving the gallery user interface


In order to maintain the quality of the visitor experience, we have no plans to accept banner or link advertising on the website, so please kindly do not approach us on that.

We welcome your feedback, especially to report bugs or give us route feedback.
