Scheme of the Month - Aire Valley Bike Bus


Every Wednesday for the past year, cyclists have been meeting up on their journey between Keighley and Bradford to share their commute.

This social cycle, has a fixed route and timetable (a bit like a bus!), so that commuters can join and ride some or all of the route in the company of others.

Zsolt Schuller

What is your job or other main activity that involves cycling?
I am the Cycle Exeter Project Manager. As one of Cycling England’s Cycling Towns my role is to work towards getting ‘More people cycling, more safely and more often’ in Exeter.

How long have you done that?
I’ve been working on this since the end of 2005 and somehow still have most of my hair.
