The Huddersfield Active Travel Project offers information and advice on local walking, cycling, bus and train routes. We also offer a number of free activities and workshops including led rides and walks, bicycle safety checks, cycling and cycle maintenance training.
Personal Journey Plans
Want to get from A to B by bike, foot or public transport in and around Huddersfield? We can help you plan your journeys to make them cheaper, healthier and happier. As well as talking you through online journey-planning tools, we can provide bespoke timetables and route plans.
Information and advice
Our regular Active Travel Surgeries can provide maps and information on the excellent walking and cycling routes in the local area, and give you some ideas for routes of your own.
There’s also advice on where to start if you want to make a change in the way you travel.
If you’d like to ride in company and with the support of an experienced and qualified cycle instructor, we have a range of rides to suit all abilities. We also have a limited number of hire bikes.
Free bike safety checks
Want to make sure your bike is safe and ready to ride? Our very own Dr Bike holds regular sessions where they’ll carry out a thorough safety check and fix any minor problems. If there is anything we can’t fix, we’ll let you know what further work is needed and how to go about getting the repairs done.
Whether you’ve never ridden a bike before, or are a regular cyclist looking for some tips on how to cycle on busier roads our fully trained cycle instructors can offer a one-to-one session to suit you. We can also offer cycle training for small groups and families.
Cycle maintenance training
If you’d like to look after your own bike we can offer free courses covering basic maintenance. From how to fix a puncture, to adjusting brakes and gears.
