Tue 18 Dec Steady Cycle Ride


Wakefield District Cycle Forum (WDCF) is a voluntary organisation aiming to promote and campaign for better cycling facilities for all cyclists within the Wakefield District, represent all kinds of cyclists, improve cycling infrastructure and encourage cycling throughout the district.

They organise many FREE events throughout the year, including Cycle Rides, Cycle Skills Courses, Bike Doctor, (bicycle safety & health checks), basic Bicycle Maintenance Classes and Information/Advice Stalls.

A Steady Cycle Ride will be taking place from Pontefract Park on Tuesday 16 October, Tuesday 20 November and Tuesday 18 December.

Meet in the main car park inside the racecourse 10:15am. If you’re fairly confident on your bike, steady rides are the next step up, cycling a bit further at a comfortable pace, lasting approximately 3 hours and usually includes a refreshment stop.

A number of bikes are available to borrow. There is no charge but bikes must be booked in advance by email:
