Default Funding sources?

Does anyone have good pointers to funding sources, eg, grants,
for cycling projects?

Also if anyone has pictures of good bike lockers, specifically
the cages at Barnes Wetlands Centre or similar please could I have
a pointer to a URL?

The project is to build a secure bike shed for a local primary school.

There is a fund for sustainable transport projects in schools, I think
it's called TravelWise. Your local education office should be able to
give you details of how to apply.

Are you in London? There may be TfL funding if so.

All schools are encouraged to produce green travel plans. When they
do, they get 5000 of funding for travel improvements. That would buy
a small secure bike shed - or lots of Sheffield stands. Your local
council should know about this.

The bikeaway locker is good but stores the bike upright - hard for
children with heavy suspended bikes. Bykebin is a plastic box. But for
primary school a lockable compound should be secure enough and much
easier to administer than separate lockers.
