Free adult cycle training sessions in Huddersfield and Wakefield this May

Build your confidence on the bike with the West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s CityConnect team

Free adult cycle training sessions are being held in Huddersfield and Wakefield this May, as part of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s £60m CityConnect programme aimed at encouraging more people to travel by bike or on foot.

In partnership with training providers BikeRight!, the CityConnect team has been helping more people increase their skills and confidence on the bike with a range of training sessions at venues across West Yorkshire.

From learning to ride to cycling in traffic and tackling busy junctions, there is a CityConnect training session for everyone.

Learn to ride – for the complete beginner: A step-by-step guide, from getting on and off to bike handling and balance.

Novices - for the new or returning rider: For people who can already ride a bike but who are not very confident. Pick up the skills and knowledge to go down to the local or take a trip out into the countryside.

Improvers – building confidence on the road: Gain the confidence and skills to negotiate cycling in traffic on the road.
