6 hour wheel-building course

We have until recently offered courses for the general public free of charge for adults 16+ who live, work or study in West Yorkshire, thanks to a grant from go:cycling. This has now come to an end. However if your organisation or community group would like to enquire about arranging a course please contact us.

We also work with other local organisations to engage adults in training opportunities. This work is funded by the Triangle Trust.
