CycleHack Leeds is a part of the 2018 Global CycleHack Event taking in place from 10-12 August this year. Cities all over the world will spend 48 hours designing solutions to reduce barriers to cycling in their cities. Come along for a creative and fun weekend! It is a not-for-profit event run completely by volunteers.

Ideas will be implemented and tested in the city to create prototypes and see how they might work in the real world. All the ideas created are then shared on the CycleHack Open Source Catalogue for the world to see, share and use in their own cities.

Let’s take barriers to cycling in Leeds and create and prototype new ideas to make them happen.

Your ticket includes food, refreshments and materials for the weekend.

Follow us along on Twitter: @CycleHackLDS #CycleHackLeeds
