Cycling support

York is regarded as one of the country's premier cycling cities. It has an extensive network of off-road cycle paths and on-road cycle lanes for cyclists of all ages and abilities to enjoy. Ample cycle parking is provided throughout the city, including several sites within the pedestrianised city centre.

There are also a range of bike maintenance courses available to help you look after your bike, and perform safety checks and repairs.

iTravel York / iCycle

Similar to Cycling City York, i-Travel York is a partnership project, run alongside a range of organisations within the city, with the council leading to co-ordinate a whole city approach. To maximise the benefits of the existing high quality cycling, walking and public transport networks in the city, such as the hugely successful Park and Ride network. It will also ensure integration of the infrastructure improvements provided from sources such as the Local Transport Plan, Access York and the Better Bus Area Fund programme.

Get Cycling is a registered community interest company and the largest independent bicycle shop in Yor. For the last ten years they have promoted cycling across the UK through bike try-out events, bike loan programmes and health challenges and have put almost a million people on bikes. From their base on the bike path network they sell, rent out and repair cycles.
