Cycle Champions

Bradford is one of the thirteen areas in England funded by CTC to promote cycling as a sustainable travel alternative.

Aim: To encourage thousands of Bradfordians to jump on their bike when undertaking local (2 miles or under) journeys, rather than slumping in their cars. 50% of car journeys in Bradford are of 2 miles or less. The programme will promote the personal (and planet) health benefits of cycling, as well as promoting it as a low stress, safe, sociable and fun activity.

This scheme is based in eight areas across the Bradford district and employs 14 wardens to help communities take more pride in their environments by addressing environmental and neighbourhood issues; for example, fly tipping and litter.
