Hull sits at eights in the UK for cycling to work, with eight per cent of residents cycling to work, compared with just three per cent nationally.
Hull City Council has been provisionally awarded £1.36m by the Department for Transport to improve the city’s cycling infrastructure. The funds will help fast-track the authority’s plans to making key improvements to cycle routes across the city as part of the 10-year local cycling walking and infrastructure plan.
Councillor Marjorie Brabazon, Chair of Hull Culture and Leisure said: “Cycling is growing in popularity, so the opening of the circuit will be welcome news to many. We’ve already seen bookings so expect to see the track busy over the summer”.
The track’s layout consists of a 300-metre flat loop, 480-metre central loop and 220-metre flat oval, bike storage and lighting incorporating 73 LED-illuminated columns for winter usage.
