Cycling & Scooting

Cycling and scooting are a great way to avoid the queues on the way to work and you’re guaranteed a convenient parking space once you arrive! What’s more you’ll save money, be fitter and healthier and its environmentally friendly too.

You can reach Wakefield city centre and both Westgate and Kirkgate train stations in around 20 minutes. In the opposite direction, it’s just over 10 minutes to Chapelthorpe, a 20-minute cycle to Horbury and slightly longer to Ossett.
