Cycling Awards are back!


Leeds Cycling Campaign’s Cycling Awards are back this year.  ​Help us find the Leeds Cycling stars of 2023!

The awards shine a spotlight on and celebrate individuals and teams who are making a significant contribution to promoting and encouraging more people to take up cycling in our city.

We have four award categories intended to highlight the strong cycling culture developing in Leeds. In addition our Rotten Tomato award gives you the opportunity to show where more work remains to be done!

Best Cycling Promotion

Awarded to the education or promotion project that has had the most significant impact on encouraging cycling and a cycle-friendly environment in the past year. This could include publicity campaigns, school education programmes, or promotional cycling events. Nominations could be for individuals, third sector or statutory organisations.
