CASH up to �10,000 is being dished out by City Hall for enthusiasts to promote biking across London.

Transport for London is calling for applications for grants to set up cycling activities in their communities.

The next round is open for applicants from next Monday until February 5.

The fund helps develop projects to encourage people to cycle and make it an everyday activity open to all Londoners, especially projects that build confidence for infrequent or new cyclists from all backgrounds, especially women, children or the disabled.

Community groups already benefited include East London's Wilton Estate project at Hackney which got nearly �5,000 for cycle training for adults and children and for maintenance workshops in the youth centre.
