Be part of a better future for York!

Help us support York residents to walk and cycle into a healthy, green and kind future.

York Bike Belles supports York residents of all ages and abilities to walk and cycle as the natural way to get around our city. We run a friendly and fun programme of free walking and cycling support activities. This currently includes a start cycling scheme for new and returning cyclists, rides on a rickshaw bike for the elder community, nature engagement walks and rides, community volunteering, community social media and green social prescribing.

We prioritise under-represented, vulnerable and marginalised groups in our work. This includes people over 55, the elder community, women and girls, people with health conditions and with disabilities.

We attract and engage large numbers of York residents - over the last 3 years, we have delivered around 800 activities with 130 volunteers to over 5000 residents. We are effective in achieving our positive outcomes - over the last 3 years, 75 - 92% of participants increased their levels of cycling, physical activity and health and wellbeing. We have a constant demand for our services, which has increased in 2020. We tackle some of today's most important issues - inequalities, isolation and the climate and nature crises. You can read more about us and our new 3-year Strategy at www.yorkbikebelles.community.

We need ongoing financial support to help us continue, sustain and grow our work for the benefit of the residents of York. Thank you in advance for any donation you are able to give!
