Click to expandLove to Ride Cycle September

Cycle September is a month long event aimed to get more people cycling and we'd like as many people as possible in Leeds to take part.

It's a fun, free event for individuals and workplaces to encourage one another to give cycling a go. If you set up an organisation, you will compete nationally with other teams of a similar size to see who can earn the most points at the end of the month. You'll earn points for riding and encouraging others as well as extra points if you're new to cycling!

Plus there's tons of great prizes up for grabs just for taking part.

If you haven't cycled for years, don't worry! You only need to log a 10 minute ride for it to count!

If you already ride - you already know how enjoyable riding is and how it can make you happier, healthier and wealthier. So here's your chance to get your workmates to experience how easy and enjoyable riding can be.

Get involved, it takes just 2 minutes to register. Go to www.lovetoride.net/cityconnect and click 'Register' at the top of the page!

Give it a go and help us get more people cycling across Leeds and the UK!

​Cycle Yorkshire is a unique initiative seeking to use Yorkshire's Grand Depart to deliver a region wide cycling legacy for all generations and all abilities.

Every year Yorkshire plays host to major races on the cycling calendar from professional road races to world cup mountain biking. Ilkley, Otley and Clifton cycle clubs are among the oldest in the country. Their members join thousands of other enthusiasts to take part in the hundreds of organised sportives and mass participation cycling events across the county each year.

The drive and passion for cycling in Yorkshire has a long history. Participation is above the national average across our region and York has been named in the top three best cycling cities in the country.

This is a great base from which to start but there is still a lot do. All Councils and Cycle Yorkshire partners are committed to building Yorkshire's cycling reputation even further.
