Capital of Cycling is a coalition of cycling organisations, community groups and charities. We have a cycling hub in the heart of Bradford centre, opposite City Hall, next to The Bradford Hotel.
We hope to support and connect some of the fantastic cycling work, events and opportunities that are already going on in The District. We wish to declare Bradford to be THE Capital of Cycling – and then work together with everyone who wants to – to make that actually happen.
Below is a list of the current organisations who are most prominently involved – this is not intended to be exclusive and we hope and expect it will grow.
Key Coalition members:
- Bradford Bikery
- Bradford Disability Sports and Leisure
- The Bradford Cycling Campaign
- Tim Curtis Arts
- The Bradford Cycle Club
- Choices 4 All
Many more volunteers and members have given up their time and resources to help us get started. We have ‘wall of thanks’ in the window of our Hall Ings venue. Is your name on it yet? Please contact us if you feel you need to be mentioned on this page or would like to get involved with us.
If you’ve passed the hub recently, you will have noticed weird and wonderful things going on inside as we get set up. Already, you can store bikes securely here, join in one of our organised rides and get involved in a range of activities. Soon we hope to offer ride and bike maintenance training for adults and kids, free meeting space for cycling groups and more.
If you want to get cycling, you’ve come to the right people! If you’re already involved in a cycling organisation such as a club or community group with an interest in it – come talk to us. Let’s work together to build something bigger than the sum of our parts.
