The wheel appeal of cycling to a south Leeds shopping centre has been shown at a special two-wheeled event.

Cyclists were given the chance to have their bicycles recorded and registered with West Yorkshire Police free of charge and given bike locks at the White Rose Shopping Centre, in Churwell, last week.

It was aimed at helping shoppers and staff to travel to the White Rose sustainably. The centre has several cycle stations and showers for staff keen to ride to work.

Stephanie Hunter, the White Rose’s travel planning coordinator, said: “Cycling is a highly sustainable way of getting to the centre and we want to encourage staff and customers to use this mode of transport.”
