Support for schools

We're working with schools across the region to help make them more bike friendly for pupils and teachers

Our Bike Friendly Schools scheme, which is run in partnership with Bradford-based BeCycling, is targeted at schools on or near to cycle routes either built or improved through the CityConnect programme. 

It provides pupils with access to a bike and free cycle training, free training for staff to plan and deliver activities and funding for bike and scooter parking.

From learning to ride for the first time to making the journey to secondary school by bike, pupils from 45 schools across West Yorkshire have received support through the scheme.

More than 50% of pupils who go through the scheme are learning to ride for the first time.

Over 140 extra bike and scooter parking places have been installed at participating schools.

Become a Bike Friendly School

Our Bike Friendly School scheme is open to schools on or near our routes. Get in touch with us for more information about becoming a Bike Friendly School.

We went along to a bike sale at Byron Primary, our Bike Friendly School on Barkerend Road, Bradford to find out more.
