PRIMARY school children in Bradford have been boosting their cycling skills thanks to bike and helmet loans provided through the West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s CityConnect programme.

It is aimed at enabling more people to travel by bike and on foot.

Work is underway across the region to enable more people to travel by bike and on foot, which will play a vital role in the region’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic by ensuring capacity on public transport is there for those who really need it.

A total of 30 bikes and helmets have been delivered to three of the Combined Authority’s Bike Friendly schools since the UK went into lockdown, including Low Ash Primary School, Westbourne Primary School and Westminster C of E Primary Academy. More bikes will be delivered to Pudsey Bolton Royd Primary School.
