Celebration cycle and pedal-powered cinema as 2019 UCI Road World Championships come to Bradford

Friday 27 September, from 5pm Join us for a free community celebration cycle and pedal-powered cinema on the eve the 2019 UCI Road World Championships women’s elite race comes to Bradford.

At 5pm on Friday 27 September there will be a led ride from Bradford Capital of Cycling along the city’s new £3.1m Canal Road Cycleway to Saltaire Brewery for the pedal-powered cinema.

The team behind the West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s CityConnect programme aimed at encouraging more people to travel by bike or on foot has joined forces with Bradford Capital of Cycling for the event, which will celebrate the community’s contribution to grassroots cycling.

People are invited to come along to the Brewery Tap on Dockfield Road, from 6pm, with the film being shown from 7.30pm onwards. Saltaire Brewery’s bike parking was funded through CityConnect’s Bike Friendly Business scheme, which provides tailored advice and support, as well as grants of up to £5,000, to help organisations be more cycle friendly.

Audience members are being asked to select their film of choice by placing a vote on the Facebook event page prior to the event and they will also be encouraged to take it in turns to use their pedal power to keep the film running.
