Now in their twelfth year, the Cycle-Rail Awards recognise progress made by the rail industry and associated organisations towards encouraging integrated cycle-rail travel.
We have a clear aim to encourage the greater use of cycles to access the railway. These Awards enable us and our partners to move closer towards fulfilling this ambition, through improving communication and the spread of best practice across the industry.
There were ten award categories this year, ranging from the Cycle-Rail Photography Competition to Station of the Year. Browse the categories and criteria for entry.
The Cycle-Rail Awards recognise progress made by the rail industry and associated organisations towards encouraging the integrated use of bikes and train travel.
The rail industry has held similar awards since 1997, when the Cycle Mark award was launched. They ran in that form for three years and, following a break in 2000, were re-started in 2001 with the support of the Strategic Rail Authority (SRA). Another break in 2003 was followed in 2004 by the creation of the Connections awards, sponsored by the SRA and Association of Train Operating Companies (ATOC). From 2016, they were run by Rail Delivery Group.
Entries and nominations have risen over the years, reflecting the industry’s changing approach to cycles and trains. Find out more about the previous winners.
The 2016 awards were sponsored by Cyclepods. They were also supported by the All-Party Parliamentary Cycling Group and attended by Ministers of State, Members of Parliament, Lords and key decision makers within the cycle and rail industries. Find out more about our sponsors and supporters.
