Wheels in motion: A big year for cycling in Bradford
It’s a big year for cycling in Bradford and to get this into gear, a Cycling Summit will take place at Bradford City Hall on Tuesday 17th January from 6.30pm to 9pm.
The summit organised by b-spoke and Active Bradford will showcase the launch of the updated Bradford Cycling Strategy, Stage Three of this year’s Tour de Yorkshire starting in Bradford’s City Park and the on-going major cycling infrastructure development including the City Connect Cycle Superhighway linking Bradford and Leeds.
Bradford Council and CityConnect are supporting the event and will be making some exciting announcements for 2017 which will confirm Bradford as a developing and ambitious centre for cycling.
John Dennis, from Active Bradford, said: “All are welcome to the summit which will be a gathering of everyone involved in every aspect of cycling in Bradford. This is an opportunity for people to share information, find out what’s happening and look ahead to some of the possibilities Bradford can aspire to.”
Coun Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Sport and Culture, said: “This looks like a great event which we are happy to be supporting. I’d encourage anyone who has an interest in any aspect of the sport to come along and find out what’s in store for Bradford in terms of cycling.”
The event is free and there will be secure valeted cycle parking outside City Hall courtesy of CityConnect. People are asked to register their attendance on www.eventbrite.co.uk search Bradford Cycle Summit.
