An Ilkley Active Travel Hub has launched

Climate Action Ilkley has launch of a new project, Ilkley Active Travel Hub, after having successfully secured grant funding from West Yorkshire Combined Authority (WYCA).

The project website, www.activeilkley.org.uk, contains information on self-guided walks and rides as well as numerous local groups offering social walks and rides that people can join.

They are also offering a 4-week e-bike loan scheme to enable people to try out an e-bike over an extended trial. Anyone interested can register interest for this on the website.

The project is collaborating with Wharfedale Airedale and Craven Alliance (WACA) who provide a social prescribing service in the GP surgeries in order to offer advice and support to health patients on local walking and cycling options. The project will expand and develop over the next year.

People can also request one to one support or group support via our Active Travel Coordinator, Hayley Beasley-Dye who can advise on activities to suit different needs and preferences.

Hayley says “The Ilkley Active Travel Hub is a great way to get the people of Ilkley out and about and becoming more active, plus there is the potential of socialising more through all the active groups that Ilkley has to offer. Come and say hello to us when we have stands at community events.”
