Meet the North Kirklees groups getting school kids on bikes.
Chris is the chair of Cycle Kirklees, the area’s cycle campaigning group. He kindly took us for a tour of his favourite local byways and bridleways.
In a hilly area like Kirklees, e-bikes are a gamechanger! They can make cycling much easier for those of us with less than stellar fitness or extra stuff to carry. But there’s a bewildering variety of types out there, and they’re a big investment: how do you know which one to get?
Take an e-bike on a scenic loop of approx 3 miles with a qualified cycle instructor, who’ll show you how to get the most out of electric assistance.
There are currently some closures to popular cycle routes in Kirklees – please be aware if you’re planning a journey!
Join us at the Huddersfield Food Festival and find out more about local walking and cycling groups, resources, and routes.
