Leeds Cycling Campaign – first meeting next Weds 10th April, The Adelphi.
I don’t live there at the moment, but I used to, and I likely will do again soon. I lived in Burley and commuted to Morley (exciting), later lived in high Headingley and commuted to the city centre (less exciting, but frustrating in any number of ways). All I can say is this is desperately needed, keep us updated – if/when I move back I will certainly attend.Posted 4 years ago
For those attempting to cycle in and around Leeds, and who might want to do something about making it less rubbish, the first meeting of the Leeds Cycling Campaign is next Weds evening (10th April) 7.30pm in The Adelphi pub in Leeds (upstairs function room).
There’ll be an update on current campaigns in Leeds and an open forum for ideas and feedback. Everyone is welcome, particularly those that *don’t* cycle – if you’d like to, why not? What would make you get on your bike?
Leeds is pretty much at the bottom of UK cities for cycling. We are going to change this.
Hope to see some of you Leodensians there!Posted 4 years agozinzanMember
Err – I would have to disagree here regarding that “dreadful” comment.
Been riding off road in Leeds for years (double figures here), North Leeds mainly (but also multiple 50+ mile off road circumnavigations).
Yes most trails are not marked, but some are. Put some effort in and you will be rewarded!
Not sure about road or blacked cycle routes – “dreadful” might apply.
This is Singletrack isn’t it?

i have commuted into leeds for the last 19yrs, from wakefield and rothwell.Posted 4 years ago
it is truly horrendous, not one cycle friendly part on my whole commute.
i can do the ride offroad all bar the last mile on a very muddy canalside and through parks…..this option is not too bad.
I won’t be attending but one thing you need to bring up if you have anyone attending from the council is why Leeds are not repairing the potholes. I have seen cars and cyclists having near misses as they attempt to avoid the potholes making already dangerous roads lethal.Posted 4 years ago
You can actually tell by the state of the roads when you enter Leeds. Hunslet Road just around the corner from the Adelphi is like something from a third world country.bearnecessitiesSubscriber

Is that the ones between the Angel pub and Gildersome roundabout? I know there are some along there that would be classed as sink holes in any other country.Posted 4 years ago
