Wakefield District Cycle Forum - promoting and campaigning for cyclists
Wakefield District Cycle Forum

Wakefield District Cycle Forum

Wakefield District Cycle Forum is not your usual cycle club – WDCF is much more than that.

cycling is good for you, the environment, and it's fun

Want to ride?

We introduce new or rusty riders to the fun of cycling, with a programme of graded guided rides. Start with easy, largely off-road trails, progress through longer rides and then try our strenuous road rides with further to travel before the first essential refreshment stop. 

As part of Wakefield MDC’s Our Year, we’re putting on a Wonders of  Wakefield (WoW) ride every month in 2024. It’s a 21 mile circular route, largely off road, with some steep hills.  If you’re WoW ready, check our Rides and Events page for the next WoW. 

No-one gets left behind and you will get guidance before you start to help you judge whether you’re ready for the challenge.

Latest News

You can now see our Spring 2024 Newsletter on our Newsletters page. There are plenty of photos and articles but if your ride’s missing or there’s something you want to say, email news@cycling-wakefield@gmail.com and it may turn up in our next issue!

Our new WoW map is available on on our Maps page.  A printed version in the Wakefield MDC ‘Our Year’ colour scheme is available from local libraries or our ride leaders and has also been installed in the map stands at Anglers, Newmillerdam, Pugneys and Walton Park.  New stands are in course of preparation for the Hepworth Wakefield and another as yet undisclosed location.

We don’t just talk, we act.  Our working parties lay new routes and clear existing ones. We are an advocate for local cyclists, promoting new routes, linking existing ones and challenging the obstruction of cycle routes. 

We organise many FREE events, including cycle skills courses, Bike Doctor sessions, Basic Bicycle Maintenance Days and information stalls. 

The larger our numbers, the greater our influence.  Fill in the application form and pay  £5 for lifetime membership.
