Getting on your bike is quick, healthy and low cost. Cycling is therefore a great way to get around the local area, or if you are a little fitter, to travel further afield.
For those wanting to get about by bike, Victoria Gardens is perfectly located. In 5 minutes, you can cycle into Headingley, whilst Leeds City Centre is less than 10 minutes away by bike, meaning many local journeys can be quicker by bike than they are by car.
Like many cities, Leeds has a growing number of cycle routes, which can now be seen on a handy interactive cycle map. As well as the comprehensive map, there is an online route planner that calculates your route, expected calorie burn and even how much CO2 you will save.
