Cycle-Rail Awards 2016

Sponsored by Cyclepods

Now in their twelfth year, the 2016 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.

How to enter

There are ten award categories, ranging from the Cycle-Rail Photography Competition to Station of the Year. Browse the categories and criteria for entry.

The 2016 National Cycle-Rail Awards open for entries and nominations from Friday 3rd June and close on Friday 9th September 2016 at 17:00. The entry forms will be available on the category pages between those dates.


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). 

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.

This year’s awards are sponsored by Cyclepods. They are 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.

The Awards are held in high esteem by the industry and often lead to coverage in general media and specialised industry press in the cycle and rail sectors. Read the media coverage from the last few years.
