    Cycling training sessions set up by West Yorkshire Combined Authority have been helping commuters ditch their cars for two wheels.

    Over 500 sessions have been held so far by the CityConnect project, assisting people with increasing their cycling skills or even setting them up on their first ever bike ride.

    The scheme has also handed out 50 bikes to jobseekers to provide them with a means to access employment.
