Cycle Park Facilities

Cycle park facilities are available at railway stations in the district. Information about taking your bike on the train can be found on the West Yorkshire Metro website.

Support for people who cycle to work or want to start cycling

The cycling charity CTC can offer a variety of training and mentoring opportunities to help less experienced cyclists build their confidence to travel on the road network. For further information contact Ginny Leonard on 01274 223239 or ginny.leonard@ctc.org.uk

Bradford also has a cyclists' forum which meets quarterly and is open to all who wish to have a voice in the Bradford cycling community. Their blog is at cyclebradford.org.uk/

Bike Bus

Those living along the Aire Valley corridor and with enough cycling confidence to get straight out and give cycle commuting a go might want to join the Aire Valley bike bus. The bike bus is a group of cyclists with varying levels of ability who cycle from Keighley to Bradford and back again in the evening every Wednesday.

Bike Budi
