Capital of Cycling is a charity that works cooperatively to the help grow cycling in Bradford. We run riding and maintenance lessons, recycle bikes and provide support and advice to community groups. We use our resources and skills to support a range of projects where cycling can offer part of a solution to community or environmental needs. We are not a bike shop, but we do have two venues that contain lots of bikes!
Our original venue is opposite City Hall, next to The Bradford Hotel – at the moment we’re just running cycling lessons there. Our new venue is up behind the Oastler Market, on Rawson Road – here we have moved our maintenance workshop and our offices.
We run volunteering sessions, support youth work and more. We work with a range of other partners and groups in providing bikes, delivering public engagement events and providing venues for meetings and activities which can help improve the health and wellbeing of people in Bradford.
Current projects include gifting bikes to refugees and offering training to local youth groups and support for community groups in deprived parts of the District.
