People of CityConnect – Making it Count: the numbers and figures so far

People of City Connect - November 29th 2016, 3pm - 5pm, Wellington House, Leeds, LS1 2DE

This November the People of CityConnect group will focus on what and how we collect key data and evidence to show the impact and benefits of CityConnect projects, initiatives and activities. We’d like you to come along to find out how and why we do this but also help us make sure we are answering the burning questions you might have on this subject.

Gathering evidence and sharing it is a really important part of the work we do. Through the monitoring and evaluation programme, which is set to continue until 2026, we have already used the data to see an increase in cycling along the Cycle Superhighway route.

This data not only gives us the evidence that CityConnect activities are working to get more people cycling more often, it also helps us to shape future engagement activities and infrastructure projects and tells us what we should be doing more of and what we should be doing less of.

During the workshop, we’d like to share with you some of the latest CityConnect statistics and find out the sorts of things that you’re interested in knowing more about.

Please let us know if you would like to attend by emailing -

On the evening of 29th November, CityConnect will be holding a session at Stanningley Fire Station where you can get your bike checked and ready for winter - Dr Bike will be in surgery, lights and locks will be available and we will be providing a Bike Marking service.

Following the People of CityConnect session, we will be leading a Bike Bus up to Stanningley Fire Station for those who wish to attend. We will be meeting at 5.15pm on City Square, and setting off at 5.30pm.
