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 lots of bikes!
Our new city-centre venue is on Rawson Road, behind the Oastler Market (opposite The Bazaar) – here we have a maintenance workshop and our offices. We also run cycling lessons in an un-used floor of the car park above.
We run volunteering sessions and work with a range of 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.
