Advance warning of a cycling challenge taking place on Saturday 14 July. Starting from the Happy Days Cycles and Cafe, Town Hall Street, Sowerby Bridge this is a fully self supported gravel event around Huddersfield. Using tracks and quiet lanes, the route has roughly 10,000ft of climbing, 90 miles in length and is a real test. (Better start training now!)

The route uses high, exposed moorland, valley bottoms and everything inbetween. Suitable for gravel bikes and hardtail MTB’s. The route is roughly 50/50 road/offroad

Calderdale Rocks!

A new Calderdale Rock and Decorating Workshop at Happy Days Cycles and Cafe on Thursday 5 April, 1:00pm-3:30pm. 

Create your own design on a rock. Write Calderdale rocks on the back. Take a picture of it then take it away and hide it.

Join Calderdale Rock Facebook and keep checking to see if it has been found. Check out Calderdale Rocks Facebook page for more detail. Link it in with Easter and make Easter designs.

Great way to get kids to go for a walk. All ages welcome.

Happy Days Cycles is a social enterprise raising money to support our Community Living schemes, which provide supported accommodation for people who have been homeless or are at risk. They sell, repair and service bikes and run a super cafe.
