There will be balance bike activities for the little ones and a cycling obstacle course for older children, as well as bike checks and minor repairs.  West Yorkshire Police will also be offering bike security marking. 

The activities, which will take place at the Dewsbury Road end of the park, are free of charge and open to all.  Bikes and helmets will be provided.

The sessions are being held to celebrate Leeds’s new Dewsbury Road cycle route, which has been delivered through the Combined Authority’s CityConnect programme in partnership with Leeds City Council.
