Change your route for the better.

We're working in partnership with West Yorkshire Combined Authority to find out which areas could be improved to help you travel more easily by bike and on foot.

Learn to cycle

Free socially distant one-to-one adult cycle training sessions from the front door are being made available to help people living and working in West Yorkshire to cycle to work or college.

  • From journey planning to cycling in traffic, and tackling busy junctions and roundabouts, the one-to-one sessions are aimed at giving people the skills and confidence to travel by bike regularly to a destination, such as a workplace.
  • Each session will be led by a qualified cycling instructor on a route chosen by the participant.
  • The sessions are available to anyone aged 16 plus who lives in West Yorkshire. Participants must have access to a roadworthy bike and be confident cycling on traffic-free routes and, ideally, quiet residential streets.
