We invite you to sign up to our free five week programme of fun with Capital of Cycling.  No skills or knowledge are necessary.  You don’t need to have a bike or be confident that you can ride one.  You don’t need any special equipment or clothing. 

By the end of the programme our professional instructors will have you to riding a bike safely and confidently within a supportive group of friends. 

At Capital of Cycling we have an indoor cycling area and lots of different kind of bikes from regular road bikes to whacky fun bikes such as four seaters and reclining bikes.  You’ll be able to have fun on any of the bikes that take your fancy.  We are based in the centre of Bradford, opposite City Park.
