Our Governance and Team

Get Cycling CBS Ltd is a charitable Community Benefit Society registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (RS008016) and recognised by HMRC as an exempt charity for tax purposes. Our Members control and influence the society, represented by the Board of Directors – as we are a charitable CBS, we refer to these individuals as our Trustees. The Trustees work with our dedicated team of staff, led by Jim McGurn, and volunteers to accomplish our aims. Our annual reports provide further information from the Trustees about our work.

Community Shares

All of our Members have shares in Get Cycling CBS – similar to how community groups invest in a local hydro-electric scheme or take over the village pub. Investments give strength to our worthwhile work. If you’d like to consider joining us as a shareholding Member you can find out a bit more about what’s involved in the most recent offer document.
