Bradford Capital of Cycling 2017 – It’s for Everyone!

Come along and meet our team in our hub in The Capital of Cycling Building on Hall Ings (opposite the Town Hall). Come and try cycling for fun, leisure and lifestyle, as a novice, as a learner, to find clubs, routes or cycling partners and coaching, or even find the paths to elite competition.

Regular weekly coaching sessions with Southfield Grange Special School, BDSL, C4A and GOGA that take place at Lister Park are moving to the city centre until the end of April, offering regular cycling opportunities for all.  Beyond the end of April a new schedule of events and activities will be published.

Bradford Becomes World Capital of Cycling

It’s a HUGE year for cycling in Bradford. In April Bradford becomes the final ‘Depart’ city on day three of Le Tour de Yorkshire. Champion sportsmen and women and cheering crowds will line the streets of the District.  Already, Bradford hosted the National Cyclo-Cross Championships in Peel Park, producing several Bradfordian podium finishers. Now local lad Tom Pidcock has gone on to claim a junior world championship title in Bieles, Luxembourg. All that before January finished!

We will also be host city for the National Women in Cycling Conference in May and the massive International Cycling Cities Conference within two weeks of the Tour de Yorkshire depart.

Who Are We?

Bradford Capital of Cycling are a coalition between Bradford Disability Sport and Leisure (BDSL), Choices 4 All (C4A) from University of Bradford Students Union, The Bradford Cycling Campaign and The Bikery.

We are supported by over 15 local cycling clubs and groups, local cycle shops, cycle coaches, artists and Special Olympic Cycling Yorkshire and Humber, City Connect and Bradford Youth Service.

There is a myth that cycling is only the leisure pursuit of groups of men wearing Lycra! Our diverse and committed cycling groups smash that myth week in week out in Bradford. That’s why we can truly call ourselves – Capital of Cycling.
