Work to improve the layout of 78 sites will take place during the next 12 months.
Transport Minister Norman Baker said:“Cycling is healthy and reduces congestion so it is welcome news that more and more people are taking to two wheels.
“Ensuring this funding is targeted where improvements will make a real difference to cyclists is just one way we are ensuring this trend continues.
“This is part of the £107 million investment we have announced in cycling infrastructure over the last year, over and above the £600m we have invested through the Local Sustainable Transport Fund.”
Road Safety Minister Stephen Hammond said: “Keeping people safe on our roads is of paramount importance to me. This money will enable local authorities to put in place well targeted measures to protect cyclists across the country.”
The schemes are being offered funding with a £20m Government grant and £20m local authority match-funding.
