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.
