How to become a Trustee

Voting for the 2021 Trustee Elections is now open.

Cycling UK is recruiting a minimum of 4 new trustees to our 2022-25 board to help direct Cycling UK’s strategy, enabling millions more people to cycle. We are keen to have as diverse and inclusive a board as possible, with people coming from a wide range of backgrounds, places and perspectives.

As well as a passion for cycling, our trustees must have the essential skills, knowledge, and experience required to become an effective trustee. The candidates put forward for election all exceeded the criteria in the ‘person’ specification, with many of them demonstrating one or more of the additional skills, qualities and characteristics we specified, which relate to: financial management; charity management and governance; corporate or company law; digital marketing and communications; and volunteer management.

The 2021 Trustee Elections ballot paper provides full details on the candidates, their election statement and the Nominations Committee overview.
